Grilled Chilli Lime Chicken Fajita Salad

Tender and juicy chicken thighs grilled in a chilli lime marinade that doubles as a dressing! Creamy
avocado slices, grilled red and yellow capsicums/peppers, and succulent chicken pieces.
INGREDIENTS
Marinade/Dressing:
3 tablespoons olive oil
100ml (just over ⅓ cup) freshly squeezed lime juice
2 tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro/coriander
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon brown sugar
¾ teaspoon red chilli flakes (adjust to your preference of spice)
½ teaspoon ground Cumin
1 teaspoon salt

Salad:
4 chicken thigh fillets, skin removed (no bone)
½ yellow capsicum/bell pepper, deseeded and sliced
½ red capsicum/bell pepper, deseeded and sliced
½ an onion, sliced
5 cups cos lettuce leaves, washed and dried
2 avocados, sliced
Extra coriander leaves to garnish
Sour cream (optional) to serve

INSTRUCTIONS
Whisk marinade ingredients together to combine. Pour half the marinade into a shallow dish to marinade
the chicken fillets for two hours if time allows. Refrigerate the reserved untouched marinade to
use as a dressing.

Heat about one teaspoon of oil in a grill pan or skillet over medium-high heat and grill chicken fillets on
each side until golden, crispy and cooked through. (Grill in batches to prevent excess water
being released.) Once chicken is cooked, set aside and allow to rest.

Wipe pan over with paper towel; drizzle with another teaspoon of oil and grill/fry capsicum/pepper and
onion strips until cooked to your liking.
Slice chicken into strips and prepare salad with leaves, avocado slices, capsicum/pepper and onion strips
and chicken. Drizzle with remaining marinade/dressing and serve with (optional) extra coriander leaves and sour cream. CREDIT: Cafedelites.com
