Grilled Chicken with Oranges and Avocado

This recipe serves: 
For the chicken:
1/2 cup low-fat or non-fat plain yogurt
2 tablespoons minced red onion
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
1 tablespoon honey
salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, 4 to 6 oz. each
For the garnish:
1/2 avocado
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 orange, peeled and sectioned
1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
Cooking Instructions
1. For the chicken: Mix all the ingredients except the chicken in a large bowl. Add the chicken to the mixture and coat evenly. Cover the bowl and refrigerate over night.

2. Preheat the grill or broiler.

3. Remove the chicken from the marinade and discard the marinade. (This protects against cross-contamination.) Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper.

4. Place the chicken on the grill or under the broiler and cook until the juices run clear, 6 to 8 minutes per side.

5. In the meantime, peel, core and chop the avocado and toss it with the lime juice quickly so that it doesn't discolor. Add the oranges, onion and cilantro. Season with salt and serve on top of the chicken.

Serving Size: 1 chicken breast
