NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 1 bone-in, split chicken breast (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • Oil, for the grill grates
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Juice and zest of 1 lemon
  • 8 ounces frozen green beans, thawed

  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2 medium red onion, sliced
  • 1 large head romaine lettuce, cleaned and torn into bite-size pieces
Directions
Watch how to make this recipe.
  • Preheat the grill over medium-high heat.

  • Remove the skin from the chicken breast. Slice the chicken breasts off the bone and slice each piece across horizontally to get 4 large, thin pieces.

  • When the grill is hot, brush the grill grates with cooking oil to prevent the chicken from sticking. Sprinkle the chicken pieces with salt and pepper and grill for 4 minutes per side. Let rest for a few minutes, and then slices into strips, if desired.

  • In a large bowl, whisk together the olive oil, Italian seasoning, sugar, lemon juice, half the zest and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. (Reserve the remaining half of the lemon zest for another recipe.) Reserve 2 tablespoons of the dressing to drizzle over the top of the salad.

  • Add the green beans, olives, cheese, onions and lettuce to the remaining dressing, and toss to coat evenly. Divide the salad evenly among 4 plates or 1 large platter and top with the sliced chicken. Drizzle with the reserved dressing.
