PREPARATION
1.
Prepare a medium-hot grill fire or prepare a grill pan over medium-high.
PREPARING THE CHICKEN
2.
Cut each chicken breast in half, horizontally, to equal four thinner chicken breasts.
3.
Use the flat side of a meat mallet to pound each chicken breast to an even 1/2-inch thickness.

6.
When the grill is ready, lay the chicken on the hot grill grates and cook, covered, until the chicken has grill marks and the edges turn opaque, 3 to 5 minutes.
7.
Flip the breasts and continue to cook until the chicken is cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes more.
8.
Transfer the chicken to a clean cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes.
PREPARING THE SALSA

In a medium bowl, combine the tomatoes, cilantro, scallions, lime juice, 1 Tbs. of the oil, 1-1/2 tsp. of the sugar, and the lime zest.
10.
Season with 1/2 tsp. kosher salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper, or to taste.
TO SERVE
