lemon chicken with grilled salad

it was such a nice night out on thursday we decided to grill some chicken and salad.. a very light and bright meal.. sometimes the simplest meals are the best..




prep time: 5 minutes
cooking time: 20 minutes
servings: 3

ingredients:

3 large skinless/boneless chicken breasts
olive oil
lemon salt (recipe found here)
pepper
zest of one lemon

drizzle olive oil on chicken breasts, salt and pepper to taste, sprinkle with lemon zest.. repeat on the other side.. heat your grill to medium heat.. cook about 7-10 minutes each side depending on how thick the chicken breast is. 



grilled salad

1 head of romaine lettuce
salt and pepper
2 cloves of garlic chopped
olive oil

cut lettuce length wise, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle salt, pepper, and garlic.. heat your grill to medium heat.. cook lettuce about 7 minutes each side or until lettuce becomes a little charred and wilty.. now what I did for shell was cut up the chicken and lettuce add some feta, tomatoes, onion, chopped hard boiled egg, balsamic vinegar and a dash of garlic olive oil.. she just loved it!!
