Grilled Chicken Salad With Olives and Oranges Recipe For Your Diet


This is a healthy recipe that you would want to try on a summer hot day. If you like, you could grill the chicken in advance to save it for the next day. Cut it into strips and refrigerate it for several days so you won’t bother cooking another one. It is okay to eat some meats sometimes, but not too often. You can’t entirely prohibit yourself from eating meat; just maintain a habit consuming it once or twice a month. Follow the instructions carefully and you can make yourself a wonderful dish.

• 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
• 4 garlic cloves, minced and 2 whole garlic cloves
• 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
• 1 tablespoon finely chopped red onion
• 1 tablespoon finely chopped celery
• black pepper, to taste
• 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, each 4 ounces
• 8 cups leaf lettuce, washed and dried
• 16 large ripe (black) olives
• 2 navel oranges, peeled and sliced

Cooking the Food:
1. Let us make the dressing first. Prepare a small bowl and mix vinegar, garlic, olive oil, onion, celery and pepper. When you are done mixing the dressing, put it in the refrigerator to cool. This will be used later. Let us now proceed to the next step.

2. Clean your grill, and prepare it for heating. You can use either the coal grill, electric grill or the gas grill. You can choose any grill you want. Once you are done heating the grill rack, take it away from the heat source and lightly coat it with cooking spray. Once you are done, put the grill rack from the heat source 4 to 6 inches away.

3. Prepare the chicken breasts, rub it with garlic. Once you are done with the rubbing, discard the garlic. Put the chicken on the grill and cook it until it turns brown and cooked enough; preferably 5 to 10 minutes on each side. When you are done, transfer the chicken to a cutting board and let it stay there for 5 minutes, cooling off so you won’t burn your hands before you slice it into strips.

4. In a bowl or plate, arrange the vegetables for the salad. Put the lettuce, olives and oranges. When done, top with the chicken strips and add with dressing.

You have cooked a wonderful dish that can help you on your diet and at the same time tastes good. You can serve this with nice cold water; you could even try serving this to your family members and let them enjoy its taste. It is good to eat proper foods every day.
