Grilled Honey Peach Salad with Chili Lime Chicken

grilledpeachsalad

Ingredients

Chicken

  • 3 thin sliced chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 lime, zest and juice
  • 1/2 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 tablespoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon chili lime seasoning (I get mine at Trader Joe’s)

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Place chicken in a glass dish.  Poke holes in chicken to let flavoring seep in.  Mix together kosher salt, pepper and chili lime seasoning in a small dish.  Sprinkle it on both sides of the chicken.  Drizzle olive oil over chicken.  Zest the lime over the chicken, cut the lime in half and squeeze the juice over the chicken.  Place chicken on a baking sheet with a small rack on it. Place chicken on the rack in the pan and place in your preheated oven for 30-35 minutes.

Ingredients

  • 3 Peaches
  • 1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter (for grill pan)

Marinade for Peaches

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder

Directions

Cut three peaches into sixths.  Add to a bowl.  Mix marinade ingredients into a measuring cup and whisk together.  Pour over peaches.  You will have some left, set aside for salad dressing.

Ingredients

Salad Dressing

  • Marinade you have left from peach marinade.  This will amount to about 1/4 cup of thick honey mixture.
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Directions

Add olive oil to leftover marinade.  Mix together and pour over salad greens.

Directions to Build Salad

Start with the herb salad mix, adding a pinch of kosher salt to the greens. Add sliced red onion, diced jalapeño, San Marzano tomatoes, and avocado.  Next add the sliced cooked chicken, peaches, goat cheese and spiced candied pecans. Enjoy!
