Fresh Baked Friday: Honey Lime Chicken with Pineapple Avocado Relish

Fresh, light, healthy, flavorful, quick and easy. This dish has it all! 

I was craving some summery flavors last night so I turned to my old friend Foodgawker for some inspiration. I found this recipe from Hungry Hannah and knew it was exactly what I wanted.

The best part about this dish is many of the ingredients are on sale this week in honor of Cinco de Mayo! At Hannaford, you'll find avocados, red onions, cilantro, and limes all on sale for the festive holiday this weekend. All the more reason to make this for dinner tonight!

  3. Slice chicken into thin strips and place in glass baking dish.

Pineapple Avocado Relish

1/4 cup diced red onion
2 Tbsp cilantro, finely chopped

I served mine with a side of quinoa prepared in vegetable broth, but you can add white or brown rice to complete the meal as well.

Have a lovely weekend everyone!
