Blackened Chicken Salad
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 Tablespoons blackening seasoning
  • 5 - 6 c. Romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 1 cup diced watermelon, peaches or blueberries (any combination of fresh fruit will work)

Preheat grill. Pour seasoning in a gallon size zip top bag. Dry chicken breasts and place 2 at a time in the zip top bag. Zip the bag shut and shake until chicken is evenly coated with seasoning. Place chicken on preheated grill and cook until chicken is no longer pink. Remove from grill and slice. Serve over lettuce and fruit. Drizzle with Sweet Cilantro Lime Dressing.

Sweet Cilantro Lime Dressing
  • ¼ c. cilantro
  • ½ c. light mayo
  • ¼ c. honey
  • ¼ c. cream
  • 1 T. freshly squeezed lime juice

Blend all ingredients together in a blender until nicely pureed. Serve over blackened chicken salad.
