A healthy chicken salad with spicy, Asian flavor!


  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 23 teaspoons chili garlic sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 11/2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 46 cups of torn greens
  • 3 tablespoons toasted sliced almonds
  • 2 tablespoons snipped fresh cilantro leaves (I usually cut with scissors rather than chop)
  • 610 grape or cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons sliced green onion tops


  1. Preheat grill to 425Β°F
  2. Using a tenderizing mallet, flatten the chicken breast (shinny side up) to about 1/4 – 1/2 inch thick
  3. Combine honey, lime juice, chili garlic sauce (we bought two kinds, ended up gong with the less hot), sesame oil and soy sauce
  4. Remove 2 tablespoons and brush over chicken, you’ll use the rest later
  5. Cook chicken on hot grill for 2 minutes per side or until cooked through, let rest a few minutes
  6. Cut into bite-size pieces and stir into remaining sauce; refrigerate for 10 minutes or up to 24 hours.
  7. To serve, top greens with chicken (including any sauce), almonds, cilantro, tomatoes, and green onions.
