Recipe: Grilled LemonPepper Chicken Salad

Easy, summery salad; great for all those low-carb eaters. I make this lemon-pepper chicken salad for my husband when he is on his Atkins® diet.

Grilled Lemon-Pepper Chicken Salad Ingredients

  • 2 lemons

  • 2 limes

  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken breasts

  • 1 tablespoon lemon-pepper seasoning, divided

  • head iceberg lettuce, chopped

  • 4 carrots, chopped

  • 2 tomatoes, chopped

  • 2 cucumbers, chopped

  • cup sliced green onions, or to taste

How to Make Grilled Lemon-Pepper Chicken Salad

  1. Roll lemons and limes on a cutting board to release the juices; cut in half and squeeze 1/2 of the juice onto chicken breasts. Sprinkle with 1/2 of the lemon-pepper seasoning, and let marinate for about 5 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  3. Toss lettuce, carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers, and green onions together in a large salad bowl.

  4. Turn marinated chicken over and sprinkle other side with remaining lemon-pepper seasoning.

  5. Cook chicken on the preheated grill until no longer pink in the centers and juices run clear, 5 to 7 minutes per side.

  6. Cut chicken into long strips and place on salad. Squeeze remaining lemon and lime juice on salad at the last minute before serving.

Grilled Lemon-Pepper Chicken Salad Reviews

  • I loved the lemon and lime juice on the chicken in addition to the seasoning. The flavor was elevated very nicely. However for my taste, I would have preferred a light vinaigrette instead of just the lemon and lime juice. Still having the juices in there but with the addition of olive oil and maybe some granulated garlic would have really kicked it up a notch. Thank you for a great recipe
