Raw fennel adds an extra-crunchy, slightly herbal je ne sais quoi to this refreshing salad. Use a mandoline or V-slicer to get super-thin, cheffy slices that soak up the lemon dressing.

Ingredients

Cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Olive oil

3 Tbsp

Rosemary

2 Tbsp, finely chopped

Garlic clove

3 clove(s), finely chopped (1 tbsp)

Fresh lemon juice

2 Tbsp

Table salt

¾ tsp

Black pepper

¼ tsp

Uncooked boneless skinless chicken breast(s)

1 pound(s), cutlets, thinly sliced or pounded

Uncooked fennel bulb(s)

1 item(s), small, trimmed and shaved

Sweet red pepper(s)

1 small, cored and thinly sliced

Yellow pepper(s)

1 small, cored and thinly sliced

Lettuce

1 cup(s), chopped, or mixed greens

Basil

12 leaf/leaves, for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, whisk the oil, rosemary, garlic, lemon juice, salt, and black pepper. Place the chicken in a storage container or resealable plastic bag and add 3 tbsp of the marinade. Reserve the remaining marinade. Close the container tightly and shake to coat the chicken. Refrigerate the chicken for at least 2 hours or up to 2 days.
  2. Coat a grill rack or grill pan with cooking spray and preheat to medium-high. Grill the chicken until cooked through, about 3 minutes per side. Discard the marinade in the container. Transfer the chicken to a cutting board.
  3. In a large bowl, toss the fennel, bell peppers, and lettuce. Thinly slice the chicken and add to the salad. Drizzle with the reserved marinade. Garnish with the basil (if using).
  4. Serving size: 1 cup
