Grilled Chicken

After sharing all of the salad recipes, I wanted to show you quick way to make chicken to add to your salad to make it a full meal.  

Tear off a large piece of parchment paper and place it on the counter.  Pour out some cajun spice, cornmeal, and salt on the paper.  There are no measurements here really, but use equal parts cajun spice and cornmeal, and then just a bit of salt.  Mix them together.


Put a boneless skinless chicken breast in the mixture and coat both sides.  Turn the parchment paper over the chicken and pound down with something heavy.  I use a rolling pin.  Flatten them down so they are pretty thin.  Make sure all parts of the chicken are coated in the spice.  If you need more you can always sprinkle more on the parts of the chicken that need it. 


Have your pan preheated and then add some olive oil.  We have a cast iron frying pan and that does the trick.  It takes about 10 to 15 minutes to cook the chicken, must less than a regular chicken breast.  Then just slice it up and serve next to your salad.  Yummy.

This is our favourite kale salad with the chicken on the side.
