  1. Halve the grapefruits. With a sharp knife, slice between the membranes. Remove the segments from one side of the grapefruits. Juice the remaining half and set aside.
  2. Whisk together grapefruit juice, red wine vinegar, olive oil, honey, salt and pepper. Place grapefruit segments in dressing. Let stand for 5 minutes.
  3. Cube one avocado. Slice remaining two in half, removing seed. Carefully use a spoon and remove avocado half from skin. Squeeze lemon juice and coat avocado.
  4. Toss chicken with grapefruit mixture. Gently stir in cubed avocado. Set avocado halves on plates and serve chicken on top, spilling over onto plate.
