Homemade Salsa and Chicken Marinade

Our Saturday staple is Homemade Salsa and we use it for lunch and dinner. It is so fresh and delicious, and with the spring weather arriving it is the perfect time to pull out the grill. Typically, we grab Turkey Burgers and grill those with a side veggie. Recently, we grilled chopped Zucchini, Squash and Onions that were lightly drizzled in Olive Oil and Sea Salt. We love our burgers with avocado and topped with Homemade Salsa, it makes a delicious lunch or dinner. While you are grilling you can also throw on the Chicken and just reheat them when it is time for dinner. It keeps Saturday’s simple and delicious!
For the Homemade Salsa
2  tomatoes
1/2 red onion
bunch of cilantro
Juice from a lime
sea salt
I chop onion and tomatoes and put in lime juice, sea salt and cilantro and take kitchen scissors and chop it all finely in the bowl.
*For the Chicken Marinade I found it on Every Day Paleo and it was delicious!*
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp sea salt (optional)
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, sliced into strips
1 Tbs coconut oil  (I used Olive Oil)
1/2 red onion, sliced
2 red bell peppers, sliced
juice of 1 lemon
juice of 1 lime
2 heads butter lettuce, root removed, washed and dried
avocado with sea salt
Homemade Salsa
In a medium bowl, combine garlic, cumin, oregano, chili powder, and sea salt (if desired). Toss chicken in mixture until fully coated and set aside.
Heat a large saute pan over medium-high heat. When pan is hot, add coconut oil.
Saute onion for 3 minutes. Add chicken and continue to cook until chicken is almost fully cooked (about 10-15 minutes), stirring often.
Just before chicken is done, add red peppers, lemon and lime juice. Stir and cook for 3 more minutes.
