Optional for serving: Micro greens, lemon wedges
Instructions
  1. Preheat grill, grill pan, or cast iron skillet over medium high heat and brush the grates with oil.
  2. Season chicken as desired* and place it on the grill. Grill for 4-8 minutes per side*, or until the chicken is cooked through and the juices run clear. Remove chicken from the grill and let rest for 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, make the dressing: Whisk together all the ingredients in a small bowl. Taste and adjust for seasoning as desired. Set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, combine the greens, peas and feta. Slice, or dice, the chicken and add it to the top or the salad along with the strawberries, avocado and nuts. Drizzle with dressing and enjoy!
Notes
You can season the chicken as desired. Simply with salt and pepper or all-purpose grill seasoning. I seasoned mine with a mix of garlic powder, dried parsley, dried basil, smoked paprika, salt, pepper and pinch of cayenne.
Grilling time for the chicken will depend on the size and thickness of your chicken. Since chicken cutlets are thinner they will require less time than thick chicken breasts. Always cook your chicken to 165 degrees F.
