About this recipe: Chicken breasts are rubbed with cayenne and black pepper before being pan-fried, then topped with a fresh and creamy avocado topping. The spiciness of the chicken, is cooled by the freshness from the lime.


Serves: 4 

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast fillets
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  1. Stir 1 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper and cayenne pepper together in a small bowl; rub evenly into the chicken breasts.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat; cook the chicken in the heated oil until no longer pink in the centre and the juices run clear, 5 to 7 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the centre should read at least 74 degrees C.
  3. Stir the onion, lime juice and avocado together in a bowl; season with salt and pepper. Spoon over the chicken breasts to serve.
