Family Food Faves

I receive a subscription to "Everyday Food" by Martha Stewart and I just love it. The recipes I've tried are always tasty and fairly easy.

This is a definite "make again" dish!

Cayenne-Rubbed Chicken with Avocado Salsa

Coarse salt and ground pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (6 to 8 ounces each)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium red onion, finely diced
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 Hass avocado, pitted and cut into chunks
In a small bowl, combine 1 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and cayenne; rub all over chicken.
In a large skillet, heat oil over medium. Add chicken, and cook until browned on the outside and opaque throughout, 8 to 10 minutes per side.
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine onion and lime juice; set aside. Just before serving, fold avocado chunks into onion mixture; season with salt and pepper. Serve chicken topped with salsa.

Even with the cayenne pepper it sounds good!! Surprise, I know....Have been using red pepper flakes in more recipes. There is hope for me, boring neutral Norma!!
