Grilled Chicken Salad with Feta and Cucumbers

Grilled Chicken Salad with Feta and Cucumbers

This dish is bright with lemon juice, mint, and dill. Prepare and refrigerate up to a day ahead, but stir in the fresh herbs close to serving time. If you'd rather, you could easily broil the chicken instead of grilling it.

Cooking Light APRIL 2004

  • Yield: 12 servings (serving size: 1 1/3 cups)

Ingredients

  • 8 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Cooking spray
  • 4 cups (1/2-inch) cubed peeled English cucumber (about 2 large)
  • 2 cups chopped red onion
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon rind
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 6 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
  • 6 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • Mint sprigs (optional)

Preparation

Prepare grill.

Brush chicken with oil; sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper. Place the chicken on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 5 minutes on each side or until done. Place chicken on platter; let cool 5 minutes. Slice each chicken breast half in half lengthwise, and slice chicken pieces crosswise into thin slices.

Combine chicken, cucumber, and next 6 ingredients. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt; toss to combine. Garnish with mint sprigs, if desired.
