Ingredients
 
 

Meat & Marinade

  • 4-5 chicken breasts
  • 3-4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons red paprika
  • 2-3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • salt & pepper to taste

Salad

  • 1 head iceberg lettuce
  • 1 large cucumber
  • 2 bell peppers red & yellow
  • bunch of tomatoes
  • 1 red onion
  • 250 g Feta cheese
  • olive oil
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • lime juice

Salad dressing

  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons whole grain mustard
  • lime juice
  • salt & pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • Prepare the marinade by mixing all ingredients in a bowl. Make sure it is salty enough or the grilled chicken salad will taste bland.
  • Place the chicken breasts into the marinade and let it sit in a cold place for at least 30 minutes.
  • Prepare the salad now. Simply cut and slice all the vegetables and put them into a large bowl. Cut the Feta cheese into small chunks and add those too.
  • Add a bit of olive oil, lime juice plus salt and pepper to taste. Mix everything properly and let it chill in the fridge.
  • Start grilling the meat. It needs about 5 minutes per side, then 2-3 minutes on the edges and final 2-3 minutes on the thicker end of the breast.
  • If you have a thermometer, aim for 73-75C or 160-165F internal temperature.
  • Make the dressing now. Simply whisk all the ingredients in a small bowl. To give the flavors some time to combine, let the dressing chill in the fridge for a few minutes.
  • When serving this grilled chicken salad, I start with a base of salad, slice chicken breast goes atop of it and all is finished with a solid amount of the honey & mustard dressing.
  • Enjoy.
