Directions

Whisk together all of the marinade/dressing ingredients in a large bowl or container with a lid. Then pour out half of the marinade into a large, shallow dish.

Refrigerate the remaining marinade to use as the dressing later on with the salad. Add the raw chicken to the marinade in the bowl; marinade chicken for 15-30 minutes (or up to two hours in the refrigerator if time allows).

While waiting for the chicken to marinate, prepare all of the salad ingredients and mix together into a large bowl. Set aside.

Once the chicken is marinated and ready to be cooked, heat 1 Tbsp. of oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Grill the chicken on both sides until browned and completely cooked all of the way through.

Allow the chicken to rest for 5 minutes after fully cooking; Slice and arrange it over the salad prepared in the large bowl. Drizzle salad with the remaining dressing that was refrigerated. Serve with lemon wedges if you would like. Enjoy!
