  • I love the crisp and crunch of romaine lettuce, but you can use your favorite salad greens.
  • Allow the chicken to marinate for a minimum of 30 minutes or up to overnight.
  • If you can’t find Persian cucumber, any kind of cucumber will work.
  • Be sure to cook your chicken to an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.
  • Chicken can be served hot or cold.
  • Slice the chicken into strips for easy serving.
  • Always use fresh lemon, garlic and herbs when possible.
  • When dressing the salad, add half the dressing and mix. Only add additional dressing if needed.
