Chicken with Strawberry Avocado Pico de Gallo


Pico de Gallo, pronounced peek-o-day-GY-o, also called salsa fresca, is a fresh, uncooked condiment made with tomatoes, onion, chilis or jalapeños. You can also vary the recipe using other fresh ingredients. It is a refreshing combination of sweetness, tanginess, with just enough spice to keep you coming back for more. Perfect with chicken, tacos, tortilla chips, or just by the spoonfuls!


- 4, 4 oz. skinless, boneless chicken breasts
- 1, small avocado, halved, seeded, peeled, and diced
- 1 cup diced strawberries
- 1/3 cup diced mango
- 1/2 Tbs diced jalapeños
- 1 1/2 Tbs diced onion
- 1 Tbs honey
- juice from 1/2 a lime
- 2 Tbs chopped fresh cilantro (or chopped celery leaves)
- salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Season chicken with a little salt and pepper and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until cooked through. While the chicken is baking, in a medium bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients. Remove chicken from oven and add two tablespoons of pico de gallo on top of each serving. Enjoy!
