Directions

1. To make the grilled chicken salad: Whisk the marinade ingredients except Sriracha together to combine. Divide the marinade in two and keep one half to use later as the dressing for the salad. Add Sriracha in the remaining half of the marinade and whisk to combine. Marinate the chicken breasts for 30 minutes.

2. Heat a skillet over medium-low heat with a teaspoon of oil and grill chicken breasts on each side until golden and cooked through.

3. Slice chicken into strips and prepare the salad with leaves, strawberries, avocado slices, cucumber, feta and chicken.

4. Whisk 2 tablespoons of water into the remaining half of the marinade/dressing and drizzle generously over the salad. Season with a little extra salt and cracked pepper if needed. Serve the grilled chicken salad immediately. Enjoy!

Tips for the grilled chicken salad

  • This grilled chicken salad is the perfect solution to an easy dinner, but will also make wonders for your picnics or potlucks. You can prepare it up to a day in advance, keeping it in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve.
  • Grilling the chicken ahead of time makes it even easier to put the salad together together.
  • Try add-ins such as corn, black olives, red onion to enrich this delicious chicken salad.
  • If you don’t have feta cheese, you can simply swap with any goat cheese you like.

The chicken salad dressing

For this grilled chicken salad recipe, you only need one dressing / marinade. One half of the combo of honey, lime, olive oil, herbs and spices serves to marinate the chicken, and the other half is for drizzling over the salad when it’s ready to serve. This avoids having to make a specific marinade for the meat of choice, then drowning it in a completely different tasting dressing. With this 2-in-1 marinade, the flavors are more consistent, you save time, and you save money!
