Chili Rubbed Chicken with Avocado Salsa
This is a popular weeknight meal in our home because it comes together quickly but tastes like it took a lot of work. The avocado salsa adds sense of luxury, and I like to serve this dish with a side of black beans and a green salad.

Instructions
  1. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. In a small bowl, combine the chili powder, powdered cumin, cayenne pepper and ½ teaspoon sea salt in a small bowl and rub all over both chicken breasts.
  2. If using a skillet, add olive oil and swirl in the pan to coat. Add chicken breasts and let cook 5-7 minutes, then flip and cook another 5-7 minutes. Turn down heat and allow chicken to cook through, another 5-10 minutes, turning one more time. Be sure to check center of breast before serving or use a meat thermometer to check that the temperature has reached 160°.
  3. While chicken is cooking, prep the avocado salsa by combing the avocado, shallot, lime juice, and remaining salt to taste in a small bowl. Serve chicken breasts with avocado salsa on top.
