For a quick, fresh, easy and nutritious meal look no further than this Grilled Chicken Salad with Cilantro Lime Dressing. Romaine lettuce topped with tomatoes, avocado, cheese, grilled chicken and cilantro lime vinaigrette… this is an easy dinner recipe that you can feel good about!
I love to eat an overloaded salad as a meal. You get a ton of veggies, protein and leave feeling full. This Grilled Chicken Salad with Cilantro Lime Dressing has all that going for it and more! The Cilantro Lime Dressing brings this salad to the next level with that bright pop of flavor.
Like always, I try to keep things quick and easy. Life is just too busy to be fussing with dinner for 2 hours every night. And the less time we spend in the kitchen means the more time we get to spend with loved ones. That is why I use Cooked Perfect Fire Grilled Chicken. You can find them in the freezer aisle. They are fully cooked and ready to heat in the oven. (cooking times vary by type)
Cooked Perfect Fire Grilled Chicken is grilled over an open fire to lock in juices and come in a variety of flavors, like these Classic Style Boneless Thighs as well as Wildflower Honey Drumsticks or Bourbon BBQ bone-in Thighs.
This nutritious dinner comes together in no time. Just get that chicken in the oven and use your time to prep the salad ingredients. You will have a restaurant quality dinner salad in less than 30 minutes!
This Cilantro Lime Dressing can be made ahead or just before serving. It only takes a few minutes to make.
I am obsessed with anything with the cilantro lime combo. People either love or hate cilantro. I obviously love it. And I kind of feel bad for those that hate it because it’s like they are missing out. I could just eat bunches of cilantro like a cow eating alfalfa!
The holiday feasting season is right around the corner. And that is just more reason to eat some lightened up dinners. Save those splurges for the enormous holiday plates!
