Blackened Chicken with Mango Avocado Salsa


I am taking a detour from my standard rotation of fall-inspired recipes today. I found the very last remnants of summer produce at the market and created this freshly garnished chicken for a delicious and healthy meal. Especially since it is supposed to be 102 degrees in Phoenix today {why, fall, why must you do this to us?!}. We are huge blackened chicken fans in this house. Working in the restaurant business in the past, I would always replace the chicken in my caesar salad with blackened chicken. I prefer the slight kick from the spices above anything else. Take that and up it another notch with a sweet mango and avocado salsa.
