Combine cilantro leaves and lime juice with olive oil and salt. Next, combine these in small food processor and process till cilantro is thoroughly chopped and blended with other ingredients. Transfer marinade to flat non-reactive marinading pan.
Use a paper towel and pat dry the chicken breasts place in marinade for 3 to 5 minutes. While the chicken is marinading, prepare the salsa as described below.
