Lime Chicken with Avocado Salsa

Tasty Healthy Dinner – Lime Chicken!

This Lime Chicken with Sweetcorn & Avocado Salsa  is a really delicious and really easy dish. I think sometimes we complicate recipes when there really is no need to at all!

I think fundamentally that’s what good simple food is all about. This dish  is one of my personal favourites!  If you come for dinner at my house, this is likely what you’ll get served :-). So far no complaints!

For a long time I’d  been racking my brain for a new #HEALTHYEPLS dinner. One that’s super tasty and super easy.

The salsa is good enough on it’s own!!! Look at those colours!

Lime Chicken with Sweetcorn & Avocado Salsa

This dish is also protein packed with the chicken, low carb and low fat or at least VERY good fat.  What more could you want?

It’s also very pretty – it has ALL the colours and that is a sign of a good dinner! (no brown food here 🙂 ) And a big change and very different form Lemon Chicken….

Lime Chicken with Sweetcorn & Avocado Salsa

I’ve also been desperate for something filling but not heavy with a touch of spice! So here goes… I hope you enjoy it as much as we did

He-Who-Doesn’t-Cook gave it the big thumbs up and that’s saying something!

If it’s not enough for you as a dinner, maybe served it with sweet potato wedges or fries,  goes really really well with this dish!

It’s perfect for summer suppers or entertaining

What’s especially nice about this dish is you can add a little or a lot of chilli depending on your taste. You can also leave the chicken breasts/ thighs marinating in the fridge for an hour or for five hours.

It really is totally up to you. (I also think the salsa would be really good with a little fresh mango in it?)

The decision between thighs or breasts is a personal one. I’ve made it with both many times.

Today I’d say thighs are my favourite, maybe a little more flavour? Anyhow – I’ll leave that one for you to decide.

  • 2 Chicken breast fillets, skinless
  • 2 Limes – juice and zest
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • Sprinkling seasalt
  • Ground black pepper
  • 1 Clove Garlic crushed and chopped very finely



  • 1 small tin Sweetcorn
  • 16-20 Cherry Tomatoes, chopped into quarters
  • 1 small red Onion, chopped finely
  • 1/4 cucumber, chopped
  • Big handful chopped Coriander
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 – 1 teaspoon FreshRed Chilli – chopped very finely (or more if you like it spicy)
  • 1 Avocado – peeled – stone removed and chopped
  • Squeeze lime juice
  • Salt and black pepper to taste

Preparation Method

  1. You will need a sealable plastic bag – sandwich bag will do
  2. Hammer out you chicken breasts until they are no more than 2cm thick – I use a rolling pin 🙂
  3. In a small bowl mix the lime juice & zest , olive oil, sea salt & black pepper and the garlic
  4. Pop the chicken breasts in the plastic bag followed by the lime juice mix
  5. Seal the bag and rub the marinade into the chicken breasts. Pop in the fridge for min 1 hour max 5 hours
  6. In the meantime make the Salsa by mixing all the ingredients in a bowl, stir well
  7. When the chicken has marinated, remove the breasts from the plastic bag and pop under a very hot grill.
  8. Grill for 10 minutes – turn over and grill for a further 10 minutes, you need colour (do not burn – simply turn the grill down). Once they are ready (check they are cooked through NO PINK bits!!!! – VERY important)
  9. Serve with the salsa and a wedge of lime  (squeeze over the chicken) – enjoy! (if you want it a little ‘wetter – drizzle a tad of olive oil over the chicken as well)

Ooh this sounds lovely Clare. And just right for the hot temps this week. My local grocer was complaining that he'd sold out of avocados this week because people were making too many salads!!!!! #brilliantblogposts
