Grilled Chicken Salad

What is a better meal in summer than a simple plate of grilled chicken salad?.Right?.Last week I run out of idea what to cook for Elliot.I ask him ,would he mind eating salad ,coz I know he not a fan of vegetable.He said he like iceberg salad only ,not others.So I make a note what I should get when I shop at BJ's Wholesale.Bought a pack of 2 lbs ready wash and clean iceberg salad at $1.99.Since I'm a loser when using open fire charcoal BBQ pit,I grilled the chicken breast on a skillet.


1 pc chicken breast sliced to 2 pieces

1/2 tsp cajun spice

1 tsp sugar

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp oil

2 handful shredded yellow cheese

2 handful clean and wash salad


1:Sliced the big piece of chicken breast to 2 thin pieces.Then use tenderizer to soften the chicken meat before rubbing with cajun spice,sugar and salt.Leave it in the fridge for 1-2 hours before grilling.

2:Heat a skillet with oil at medium heat.Lay the chicken breast on the skillet ,pan-fried both side until golden brown.Removed from skillet and cut to pieces.

3:Prepare clean salad in a plate,top the cut grilled chicken and shredded cheese .Serve with your favourite salad dressing.Elliot like his salad with Blue cheese dressing and I like mine vinegared dressing.


You can add avocado,tomato,cucumber and celery into your salad.I'm sure your family will enjoy this simple summer treat.

theres nothing more appealing than a simple grilled chicken salad. I love ice berg too, but in Africa- Ghana its impossible to find some.
