Cayenne Chicken with Avocado Salsa

2 Jun

Hello again!

I am on a huge avocado kick right now so expect some recipes with avocado!

Alida’s Kitchen Chicken

Tonight for dinner I made cayenne chicken and an avocado salsa to go on top. It’s really easy and I made dessert while it was cooking (will be on the next post!).


I found the recipe through pinterest and then on Alida’s Kitchen. You can find the original here. (This picture is THEIR chicken)
It’s really delicious, though slightly spicy. Next time I would lessen the cayenne and add tomatoes to the salsa.
