That’s the scene set by our Bold Chipotle Lime Grilled Chicken Salad. It’s a harmonious blend of smoky chipotle, zesty lime, and tender grilled chicken that will leave your taste buds dancing with delight.

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons chipotle powder
  • 2 limes, juiced and zested
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 cups mixed greens
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup corn kernels
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

Instructions

  1. Start by marinating the chicken. In a bowl, combine the chipotle powder, lime juice, lime zest, minced garlic, olive oil, salt, and pepper.
  2. Place the chicken breasts in a resealable plastic bag and pour the marinade over them. Seal the bag and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or ideally, overnight.
  3. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat and oil the grates to prevent sticking.
  4. Remove the chicken from the marinade and grill for about 6-8 minutes per side, or until the chicken is cooked through and has beautiful grill marks.
  5. While the chicken is grilling, prepare the salad. Toss the mixed greens, cherry tomatoes, red onion, corn kernels, and cilantro in a large bowl.
  6. Once the chicken is done, remove it from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes. Then, slice it into thin strips.
  7. Arrange the grilled chicken strips on top of the salad.
  8. Drizzle any remaining marinade over the salad for an extra burst of flavor.
  9. Serve your Bold Chipotle Lime Grilled Chicken Salad immediately and enjoy!
