Spicy Fruited Chicken Salad

Couldn't figure out what to make for dinner tonight. I saw 2 avocados sitting on the counter and some fresh peaches...thus a salad was born.
2 Boneless Chicken Breasts
2 TBS Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce, chopped finely
2 Cloves Garlic, minced
1 TBS Oil
Salt & Pepper, to taste

Mix peppers, garlic, dash of salt & pepper, and oil with chicken. Grill 3-4 minute each side, or until no longer pink inside. Cool 2-3 minutes, then chop or slice.

For Salad:
2 avocados, chopped (avocados should be firm, not soft and mushy, but not hard)
1 large ripe peach, chopped (remove skin if desired)
1/2 cup chopped sweet onion
1/3 cup chopped red pepper
1 TBS fresh parsley, chopped
juice from 1 lime
Salt & Pepper, to taste

Chop vegetables and place in bowl, mixing gently. Squeeze lime juice over all. Fold in chicken & garnish with parsley. Enjoy. I served this with Black Beans and Chips & Salsa.
