  1. Step 1

    Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Step 2

    Combine onion powder, garlic powder, cumin, salt, pepper, and chili powder in a small bowl. Sprinkle chicken with spice mixture and rub until evenly coated. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil.
  3. Step 3

    Arrange chicken on the preheated grill and grill for 8 minutes. Turn and grill until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 4 more minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
  4. Step 4

    Remove chicken from the grill and drizzle with remaining olive oil. Let stand for 10 minutes.
  5. Step 5

    Meanwhile, mix avocado, tomato, and red onion for salsa together in a small bowl. Add lime juice and season with salt and pepper.

    Slice chicken and top with salsa.
