Grilled chicken salad
  • Cooking Time: 20 minutes
  • Servings: 2-3
  • Preparation Time: 30 minutes
  • 2 boneless chicken breasts or 4 chicken thighs (cut into thick strips)
  • 1 pound salad greens
  • 1 tomato (chopped)
  • 1/2 to 1 cucumber (chopped)
  • chopped tomatoes and cucumbers)
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil and coriander (lightly chopped)
  1. 1.Mix the marinade ingredients together in a cup except for the pepper. Slather over chicken, ensuring all parts are equally covered with marinade. Then sprinkle ground pepper all over the chicken's surface.
  2. 2.Allow chicken to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 10 to 15 minutes (or up to 24 hours).
  3. 3.If using the oven: Set oven to broil and place chicken on a broiling pan or a foil-lined baking sheet (turn out the sides of the foil to prevent juices from spilling into the oven).
  4. 4.Place chicken on the second-to-highest rung of your oven, allowing it to cook 5 minutes each side, then turning.
  5. 5.Continue broiling and turning until cooked (chicken will be lightly charred around the edges). Use the leftover marinade to baste chicken the first time you turn it.
  6. 6.If using a grill: Place chicken over a hot grill and cook until well done. Use leftover marinade to baste chicken when you turn it the first time.
  7. 7.To make the dressing: place water, lemongrass, and lime leaf strips in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Boil for 1 minute (this will soften the lemongrass and bring out the flavor of the lime leaf or zest). Remove from heat.
  8. 8.Add the rest of the dressing ingredients and mix well.
