Grilled Chicken Guacamole Chopped Salad


Ever feel torn between ordering a salad or splurging on a more indulgent appetizer? No need to choose when you can have this grilled guacamole and chopped chicken salad combo!



boneless skinless chicken breasts (6 oz each)
cup olive oil
teaspoon salt
teaspoon chili powder
teaspoon ground cumin
teaspoon ground coriander
firm ripe avocados, halved, pitted and peeled
green onions
tablespoons fresh lime juice
tablespoon finely chopped jalapeño chile
cloves garlic, finely chopped
cups chopped iceberg lettuce
cup cherry tomatoes, halved
cup crumbled queso fresco cheese (2 oz)
cup finely chopped fresh cilantro leaves


  • Heat gas or charcoal grill. Rub chicken breasts with 2 teaspoons of the olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon of the salt, the chili powder, cumin and coriander. Place chicken on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 12 to 15 minutes, turning once, until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (at least 165°F). Let stand 5 minutes; dice.
  • Brush avocados and green onions with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Place avocados cut sides down on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook avocados 5 to 10 minutes, turning once, until grill marks form and avocados soften. Grill green onions 30 to 60 seconds, turning once, until grill marks form. Transfer to cutting board; let cool about 5 minutes or until cool enough to cut. Dice avocados; thinly slice green onions.
  • Meanwhile, in medium bowl, beat remaining 1/3 cup olive oil, the lime juice, jalapeño, garlic and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt with whisk. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the vinaigrette in small container. Add avocados to the medium bowl of remaining vinaigrette, and toss to coat.
  • On large serving platter, place lettuce. Drizzle lettuce with reserved 2 tablespoons vinaigrette. Top lettuce with chicken, avocados, green onions, tomatoes and cheese, arranged in rows. Sprinkle with cilantro.
