Grilled Chicken & Lemon Salad

April 3, 2013

Chicken:
3/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
1 teaspoon salt
4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
Cooking spray
Salad:
1 cup sugar snap peas, trimmed
1/2 cup red bell pepper strips
1/2 cup yellow bell pepper strips
1/2 cup (1/4-inch-thick) slices zucchini
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon extravirgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 lemon wedges (optional)
Preparation
To prepare chicken, combine the first 4 ingredients in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add chicken to bag, and seal. Marinate in the refrigerator 1 hour, turning occasionally.
Prepare grill.
Remove chicken from bag; discard marinade. Place chicken on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 6 minutes on each side or until done. Cool completely; cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices.
To prepare salad, cook peas in boiling water 30 seconds. Drain, and rinse with cold water. Drain. Combine peas and next 7 ingredients (through black pepper) in a large bowl; add chicken, tossing to combine. Place 1 3/4 cups chicken salad on each of 4 plates. Serve with lemon wedges, if desired.
