Grill Chicken & Veggie Salad

Grill Chicken & Veggie Salad 011

This grilled salad is awesome, throw everything on the grill at once and in no time it’s done.  The only thing that takes any time is chopping up the veggies to grill along side the chicken.  Marinade your chicken early in the day, and chop up your veggies ahead of time and in less than 20 minutes dinner’s done. The salad dressing really makes this salad, balsamic vinegar, a little olive oil, honey and salt and pepper, the vinegar gives it a little bite and the sweetness of the honey balances it right out!  You can use any veggies you have, I used peppers, onions, zucchini and a couple cloves of garlic, just toss them into your grill pan or an aluminum pan with a little olive oil, salt and pepper and cook them right along side your chicken.

She’s thinking the squash!

Marinade the sliced chicken breast in olive oil, lime juice, chopped garlic and green onions for 4 to 6 hours, then just grill it for about 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until done on a medium hot grill, stir the veggies occasionally while the chicken cooks and everything will be done at the same time.

Then just serve your chicken on a bed of veggies, drizzled with the dressing.
