by: Barbie Cooking

Grill-roast the peppers and peel them so they would be sweet and tender. Make a balsamic vinaigrette and use it as a marinade for the onions, to give them a boost of flavor before they go on the grill.

1.  To make the marinade: In a small bowl, whisk the marinade ingredients until the honey is dissolved.

2.  Place the chicken in a large, resealable plastic bag and pour in the marinade. Press the air out of the bag and seal tightly. Turn the bag to distribute the marinade. Place the bag in a bowl and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours, turning occasionally.

3.  Remove the chicken from the bag and discard the marinade. Grill over Direct Medium heat until the juices run clear and the meat is no longer pink in the center, 10 to 12 minutes, turning once. Remove from the grill and let rest for 2 to 3 minutes before cutting into 1/2-inch pieces.

4.  Scoop the avocado flesh onto a cutting board and cut into 1/2-inch pieces. Immediately put the avocado in a large mixing bowl and toss with the lime juice. Add the chicken, tomatoes, and chives. Mix well. Adjust the seasoning to your taste. Serve at room temperature or slightly chilled.
