Grilled chicken salad - filled with cucumbers, radish, and carrots - it's the perfect healthy summer go-to salad!

Did you know... If you're looking for a great source of protein, this bird is the word! Chicken is high in protein and jam-packed full of essential nutrients and vitamins.

Use store-bought dressing or choose from these amazing homemade dressings, my favorite is the champagne vinaigrette!

Ingredients:

  • 10 oz boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1/4 teaspoon avocado oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper omit for AIP
  • Salad
  • 1 head romaine lettuce sliced
  • 1 cucumber sliced thin
  • 4 radish sliced thin
  • 1 carrot sliced thin

How to Make:

  1. Prepare the grill for cooking using medium-heat. You may also roast the chicken in the oven. For this option, preheat the oven to 400° and place the rack in the middle of the oven, then roast for about 20 minutes.
  2. Coat the chicken breast with a little oil, and then sprinkle with salt & pepper.
  3. Place the chicken breasts on the grill with at least 1/2" of space between them. Close the lid and cook for 5-7 minutes. Flip and cook for an additional 5-7 minutes. This should be sufficient cooking time, unless the breasts are rather large.
    When done, the chicken should feel firm and look opaque. The best way to make sure they’re done is to use an instant-read thermometer. It should read 165° when inserted into the thickest part.
  4. Arrange all of the veggies into a bowl, add the sliced grilled chicken, and top with dressing of choice.

Notes:

If you're prepping this salad in advance, just chill the chicken before adding it to the salad so that everything stays fresh.
