Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

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

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

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

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

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

Cook's Notes:

You can squeeze a little more citrus juice on the chicken while it is grilling if you like.

You can also sprinkle additional lemon-pepper seasoning on the salad.

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! Read More
