Grilled Lime Cilantro Chicken with Pineapple Avocado Salsa

So, I originally planned to make chicken noodle soup today since the weather called for it this morning, but it was too beautiful outside not to grill.  Not to mention, with my “watch what I eat” diet still in play for our upcoming wedding (31 Dec 16) I wanted to keep it simple and watch the salt intake.

What better way than to keep it simple and grill chicken all while keeping things sweet by adding a little pineapple salsa to the mix?  Our side choice for this dish is left overs…aka saffron jasmine rice. YUM!  We hope you enjoy it!  Oh, and we hope you had a beautiful Sunday!
