Citrus Avocado Chicken

I actually had this citrus avocado chicken for the first time when I was visiting our Edwards cousins in Hawaii… they made it for us and I just HAD to get the recipe.

Citrus Avocado Chicken Recipe

Luckily, they directed me to their recipe blog, Edwards Edibles, and it was on there (Kristen’s recipe… thanks Kristen)! We made it again tonight and it was WONDERFUL! It has a bright, summery flavor! I love the sweet tangy citrus flavor combined with the smooth, cool avocado. YUM! Oh and it’s gluten free… and it’s healthy…. and it tastes amazing. One of the best grilled chicken recipes I have ever had!


The salsa that is served with the chicken is incredible!  The lime, orange, and grapefruit segments combined with the herbs, the chili peppers, and the honey give the chicken a variety and freshness of flavor.  It also makes for a very colorful dish!


I wish we could grill year round like our cousins in Hawaii.  We pull out the grill as early as possible in the spring and don’t put it away until the first snowfall in the winter.  If you love the flavor the grill gives to chicken as much as we do, try some of our other grilled chicken recipes:


Other Yummy Chicken Recipes:

Coconut Curry Grilled Chicken – Grilled Chicken with a taste of India.  The chicken is marinated in coconut milk, curry, honey, lime, and cilantro and then grilled to perfection.

Grilled Malibu Chicken – This grilled chicken is marinated in a honey mustard sauce and then topped with ham and cheese.  It is served with a fabulous dipping sauce made with Greek yogurt.

Grilled Balsamic Chicken – This has been a go-to recipe of ours for years.  The chicken is marinated in olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and Italian seasonings.  It has so much flavor and always comes out tender, never dry.  It is perfect for slicing and serving on a big, green salad.
