  1. In a mixing bowl, whisk together orange juice, lime juice, shallots, garlic, chili powder, cumin, and sugar. Pour 1/2 of this mixture into a large, resealable plastic bag, and add the chicken breasts. Seal, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Refrigerate the remaining dressing.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat. In a large salad bowl, toss romaine lettuce with oranges, celery, and green onions. Set aside.
  3. Lightly oil grate, and place chicken on grill. Discard the marinade from the chicken. Cook for 6 to 8 minutes each side, or until juices run clear when pierced with a fork. Remove chicken from grill, and slice into thin strips.
  4. Toss salad with reserved dressing, and top with sliced chicken.

The chicken came out nice with a very interesting flavor. I sauteed the chicken and it was very flavorful.

This recipie was SO amazing! Anytime you feell like having a yummy salad, go for this one!

This was very delicious. Believe it or not, I accidentally bought two grapefruit instead of two oranges. It was a rewarding accident. I recommend trying it this way, too.

Was okay. It marinated for a day or two, but I just found the flavor kind of blah and a little dry due to the acidic juices, maybe. Probably won't use this one again.

This recipe was okay but I probably won't make it again. I read reviews from others and added avacado as suggested, which was good. I would definitely suggest making at least twice the amount ...

I had leftover chicken (Key West Chicken from this site) and I wanted to put it in a salad, so I used the marinade as a dressing - it was fresh and interesting! Really great. I'll try the full r...
