Grilled chicken salad

Hi All,
           Grilled chicken salad, one of the most famous and tasty salad. Having a salad itself is a complete meal....
I added few Indian vegetables to give desi touch. Hope you all will like my this version ..

2 boneless chicken breast
1 lettuce (roughly torn)
1/2 red bell pepper (finely sliced)
1/2 yellow bell pepper (finely sliced)
1 red onion (finely chopped)
1 carrot (finely sliced)
1 cucumber (finely sliced)
Few black olives
Few jalapenos

1/2 cup olive oil
3-4 garlic cloves
1/4 tsp pepper powder
1/2 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp chilly flakes
1/4 cup vinegar
Salt acc to taste
1/4 tsp mustard powder

For marination:
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper powder
1/2 tbsp honey


  • Mix all the marination ingredients in a bowl. Marinate chicken pieces for an hour in the fridge.
  • Preheat a grill pan on the medium flame. Add little bit of olive oil and place the chicken breast on the pan.
  • Grill the pieces on the medium flame from both the sides.
  • Transfer to a plate and cut into strips. Keep them a side.
  • Put all the ingredients in a jar, churn till well blended.

  • Put all the veggies (except lettuce leaves) in a large bowl. Pour the dressing on the veggies and mix lightly.
  • Now place lettuce leaves on the serving plate, place some veggies on the leaves.
  • And now the yummiest part, place the chicken pieces in the centre of the serving dish.
  • Enjoy with your favourite drink .........
Note: You can add dry fruits of your own choice like walnut, raisins .....
