Chicken breasts are rubbed with cumin and smoked paprika and topped with a fresh corn and tomato salad. Serve with lime wedges or a sprinkling of lime zest. You can buy thin chicken breast cutlets in most supermarkets. You can also buy regular chicken breasts and pound them yourself. Thinner chicken breasts, either purchased or by pounding them yourself, makes for a quicker cooking time and more evenly cooked chicken. Serve this with a side salad or broccoli.
