Grilled Lemon-Pepper Chicken Salad

Easy, summery salad; great for all those low-carb eaters. I make this lemon-pepper chicken salad for my husband when he is on his Atkins® diet.

  1. Step 1

    Roll lemons and limes on a cutting board to release the juices; cut in half and squeeze 1/2 of the juice onto chicken breasts. Sprinkle with 1/2 of the lemon-pepper seasoning, and let marinate for about 5 minutes.
  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  3. Step 3

    Toss lettuce, carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers, and green onions together in a large salad bowl.
  4. Step 4

    Turn marinated chicken over and sprinkle other side with remaining lemon-pepper seasoning.
  5. Step 5

    Cook chicken on the preheated grill until no longer pink in the centers and juices run clear, 5 to 7 minutes per side.
  6. Step 6

    Cut chicken into long strips and place on salad. Squeeze remaining lemon and lime juice on salad at the last minute before serving.
