  • 5 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves (chopped)
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder or paprika

Let's get started!
  1. Whisk together the olive oil, oregano, chopped or minced garlic, paprika, salt and pepper, then transfer the marinade into a resealable bag or a food container. Place the chicken breast fillets in the bag, rub the marinade all over the chicken and seal the bag/container. Refrigerate the chicken for 1 hour (or at least 30 minutes).
  2. While the chicken is marinating, prepare the mango-avocado salsa: dice the bell pepper, avocado, onion and mango into small pieces, transfer them in a large bowl. Season with fresh cilantro, salt and pepper to taste, drizzle with lime juice, mix it all together and set aside.
  3. Prepare a grill pan or skillet, preheat 1 tablespoon olive oil, then transfer the marinated chicken and grill/ sear the chicken for 6-8 minutes each sides, until turns golden and is cooked through.
  4. Transfer the chicken on a plate and top with the salsa.
  5. Serve with rice or quinoa.
