    Heat gas or charcoal grill. Rub chicken breasts with 2 teaspoons of the olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon of the salt, the chili powder, cumin and coriander. Place chicken on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 12 to 15 minutes, turning once, until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (at least 165°F). Let stand 5 minutes; dice.

    Brush avocados and green onions with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Place avocados cut sides down on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook avocados 5 to 10 minutes, turning once, until grill marks form and avocados soften. Grill green onions 30 to 60 seconds, turning once, until grill marks form. Transfer to cutting board; let cool about 5 minutes or until cool enough to cut. Dice avocados; thinly slice green onions.

    Meanwhile, in medium bowl, beat remaining 1/3 cup olive oil, the lime juice, jalapeño, garlic and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt with whisk. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the vinaigrette in small container. Add avocados to the medium bowl of remaining vinaigrette, and toss to coat.

  • All ingredients – including grilled chicken – can be prepared up to four hours in advance. Wait until just before serving to combine ingredients and dress salad.
