  • Whisk first 7 ingredients until blended. Reserve 1/2 cup mustard mixture; refrigerate for later use. Pour remaining mustard mixture over chicken in shallow dish; turn to evenly coat both sides of each breast. Refrigerate 2 hours to marinate.
  • Meanwhile, blend avocados and 1/3 cup of the reserved mustard mixture in blender until smooth. Refrigerate until ready to serve with salad.
  • Heat grill to medium heat. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Grill chicken 6 to 8 min. on each side or until done (165°F), brushing with remaining mustard mixture for the last few minutes.
  • Slice chicken. Cover platter with salad greens; top with chicken and tomatoes. Drizzle with avocado dressing just before serving.

Special Equipment Needed

For a Thinner Dressing

If you prefer a thinner dressing, gradually stir 1 to 2 Tbsp. water into avocado mixture until of desired consistency.

Selecting, Ripening & Storing Avocados

Look for avocados that are either slightly soft or firm. Small light-brown markings on the peels are normal and won't affect the quality of the fruit inside. If mashing the avocados for recipe use, look for softer avocados. If needing sliced avocados, or if not using immediately, select firmer pieces of fruit. Avocados will continue to ripen after being picked. To ripen, place in paper bag and let stand at room temperature until desired softness. Ripe avocados can be stored in the refrigerator for several days.


Substitute fresh chopped parsley for the cilantro.

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The chicken was good, but the avocado dressing was a bit bitter for my taste. The chicken was good, but the avocado dressing was a bit bitter for my taste. I would make the chicken with this marinade again, but I would butterfly the chicken and skip the avocado dressing altogether.
