> 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
> 1/8 tsp salt
> 3 tbsp orange juice (or juice of 1/2 an orange)
> 2 tbsp diced red onion
> 3/4 cup diced mango
> 1/4 cup diced tomatoes
> 1 cup chopped avocado

Lettuce Wrap:

> 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
> 1/4 tsp salt
> 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
> 1/2 tsp garlic powder
> 8 large romaine leaves, rinsed
> 1/2 cup light sour cream


Preheat grill or broiler to medium heat.
In a large mixing bowl, combine avocado, tomatoes, mango, red onion, orange juice, salt, and pepper. Let sit to allow flavors to combine.
Wrap chicken breasts in plastic wrap and pound to an even thickness. This will ensure even cooking.
Lightly season chicken breasts with salt and pepper and place on grill or broiler for 5-6 minutes per side or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F. Remove from heat and let briefly cool.
Once cooled, thinly slice chicken breasts lengthwise. Place lettuce leaves on a plate and fill each leaf with 2-3 chicken strips (2 oz). Place ¼ cup salsa on top of the chicken. Top with 1 tablespoon of sour cream.
Suggestion: Serve with steamed rice.
