Lemon Pepper Chicken Salad

There is always those nights when you feel like you don’t really want to cook anything too complicated but you still want to keep up with eating healthy. So to keep things fun and maintain variety I like to make anything “do it yourself”

Here is my recipe/idea for Make Your Own Chicken SaladImage

Ingredients

2 skinless chicken breasts

2 tablespoons lemon pepper seasoning

1 tablespoon chopped onions

2 tablespoon adobo (if you are not familiar with this it is similar to all-seasoning but I suggest you try to find this- it is typically in the ethnic foods isle in your market and I pretty much use it on everything)

Image

2 teaspoon olive oil (I used one each of a jalapeno infused olive oil and 1 tsp of lime infused vinegar- I happened to be obsessed with this local olive oil store in town where they make infused legitimate olive oils)

Image

Veggies of your choice for the salad- I chopped up

Romaine lettuce

Spinach

Arugula

Image

Carrots

Tomatoes

Mushrooms

Image

Red peppers

Directions:

Chop up all your veggies and rinse all for your salad. I then placed them all in separate bowls so we could choose what we each wanted to add to our salads

Season your chicken breasts on both sides and drizzle with olive oil

Pre-heat your grill to about 300 (we like slow and low)

Cook your chicken to an internal temp of 170 degrees

Make sure to let it rest once it is done for a few minutes so you don’t lose all the juices when you go to slice it up.Image

Now build your salad!

For dressing all I did was slice a lemon and squeeze it over everything- it gave a great tangy flavor and was the perfect addition for the chicken.

 

Now this may not really be a “recipe” but hopefully you get inspired to have a build your own salad or build your own anything night! It is easy and fun and every serving can be just a little bit different if you so choose!

 

Salud!
