Delicious grilled chicken with a beautiful and tasty garnish

Ingredients:

1 cup low-fat Yogurt
1/4 cup minced red Onion
2 tablespoon chopped Cilantro
1 tablespoon Honey
Salt
Ground black Pepper
4 boneless, skinless Chicken breasts - 4-6 ounces each

Garnish:
1 Avocado
1/4 cup fresh Lime juice
2 Oranges, peeled and sectioned
1 small red Onion, thinly sliced

Preparation:

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 for 30 minutes.

Preheat the grill or broiler.

Remove the chicken from the marinade and discard the marinade. Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper.

Place the chicken on the grill or under the broiler and cook until the juices run clear.

While chicken is cooking, 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.
