Place the chicken breasts on a cutting board with some space between them and cover with a large piece of plastic wrap. With a mallet, lightly pound the meat to an even thickness so that each piece cooks evenly. Place in a large ziptop bag.
In a small bowl or large measuring cup, whisk together the lime zest, lime juice, olive oil, garlic, honey, salt, pepper, and cilantro.
Pour over the chicken, seal the bag, then "squish" to coat the chicken evenly. Refrigerate for 1 hour or up to 1 day, rotating the bag once or twice if time (and memory) allow.
When ready to grill, remove the chicken from the refrigerator and let stand at room temperature for at least 10 minutes. Preheat an outdoor grill or indoor grill pan to medium-high (about 425 to 450 degrees F).
While the grill preheats, prepare the strawberry salsa: Place the red onion in a small bowl and cover with very hot tap water (this takes off some of the red onion's bite while preserving its flavor. You can skip this step if you like raw red onion just as it is). Set aside
In a mixing bowl, add the strawberries, red onion, jalapeno, cilantro, lime juice, honey, and 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt.
Stir gently to combine.
Fold in the avocado. Taste and add a bit more salt if you feel it tastes a little too flat or additional honey if it is too spicy.
Lightly oil the grill. Grill the chicken until completely cooked through and the temperature on an instant-read thermometer reads 160 to 165 degrees, about 8 to 12 minutes total, flipping the chicken once or twice throughout. The amount of time you need will vary based on the size and thickness of each breast. Remove to a plate, cover, and let rest for 5 minutes.
Transfer the chicken to serving plates and top each with a few generous spoonfuls of the strawberry salsa. Enjoy immediately.
TO STORE: Store leftover strawberry salsa with avocado in the refrigerator for up to 1 day. Leftover grilled chicken can be refrigerated for up to 3 days.
