Coconut Lime Jalapeno Chicken Salad


This salad is perfect with a classic margarita and a side of lime enhanced baby potatoes.

Ingredients: Marinade:



1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast


1 (14 oz) can light coconut milk


Zest of 1 lime


Juice of 1 lime


2 jalapenos, diced


1 tbsp. olive oil


1 tsp. of sea salt


½ tsp. cumin


½ tsp. red pepper flakes

Salad:



6-8 cups mixed greens


1 cucumber, diced


1 avocado, thinly sliced


1 cup cherry tomatoes, cut in half


Sliced jalapenos (optional)


Dressing of choice (I use Bolthouse classic ranch-20 cal/tbsp.)

Instructions: 1. Whisk all marinade ingredients together, place into a large zip-lock bag. Add chicken and refrigerate for up to 24 hours. 2. Heat up grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. Remove chicken from marinade and place onto pan. Cook for 8-10 minutes per side, until no pink remains in the meat. 3. While the chicken cooks, get the salad ingredients together in a large bowl. 4. Once the chicken is cooked through, let rest for a few minutes, then slice and serve on top of the salad. 5. Garnish with jalapenos if you’re into more heat.
