Grilled Chicken Salad

Thursday's treat!!!

Why do I feel like this summer is just going by so quickly? I am not ready for Fall yet!!!

I am sick of hearing about Back to School blah blah blah...
I am even more upset about these Christmas in July posts, sorry ladies love your stuff but no. I don't want to get ready for Christmas in July.
Now August rolled in and surprised the heck out of me so I guess I have to get my butt in gear and go out and enjoy whatever is left of this Summer in NYC.

One way to do that is to continue to cut my time in the kitchen.

So here is another quick meal so I could go out and enjoy a few hours in the park.

-2 large chicken breasts
-1 large carrot
-Monterey Jack cheese
-mixed green salad

Since I didn't use my George Foreman grill, too lazy to clean the plates I used the flat pan I use to make my pancakes.
Sprayed with Pam grilling spray and set on medium heat.
Cut my chicken breast down the middle thin slice, pounded down some and seasoned.
I washed prior for a few minutes in cold water and lemon juice.
Anyway, so I seasoned it with some lemon pepper and Sazon Accent for coloring.
I Let it marinate for a few minutes while pan got hot.

I placed chicken breasts on pan about 10 to 15 minutes making sure juices ran clear, turned to the other side until juices did the same (time varies depending on where you are grilling).
Removed pan from flame, set aside.
Shredded the carrot, cut 3 medium slices horizontal on cheese bar then cut again into smaller cubes and set aside, got the plates set handful of the greens.

Sprinkled the cheese, cut the chicken into slices, placed on top of the cheese, added the shredded carrot and done.
I drizzled a little balsamic vinaigrette for extra kick but you can use any or no dressing if you wish.
After all we are trying to eat well, reduce kitchen time and have some fun!

Enjoy, always stress free xo


*Note: I got to enjoy my walk in the park for a few hours and help my digestion lol!

  4. Yum! That looks delicious! I tend to bake my chicken when I'm feeling too lazy to clean off the Foreman grill plates - plus, it gives me 20-30 minutes to pay attention to the kids so they don't go too insane. :) (found you on the Epic Mommy Social Media hop)
