Ready Time

35 mins

Yields

7 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 small seedless watermelons, diced (about 3 cups)
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint leaves
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Grill the chicken breast pieces for about 5-7 minutes per side, or until they reach an internal temperature of 165°F.

Let the chicken rest for a few minutes before slicing it into thin strips.

In a large bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lime juice, and honey until well combined. Add the diced watermelon and toss to coat.

Season with salt and pepper to taste.

In a small bowl, crumble the feta cheese into small pieces. Add the chopped fresh mint leaves to the bowl and mix well.

Add the sliced grilled chicken to the bowl with the watermelon mixture and toss gently to combine.

Top with the feta-mint mixture and serve immediately.

Notes

Make sure to pat the chicken breast pieces dry with a paper towel before grilling to prevent sticking.

If you can’t find seedless watermelons, just make sure to remove the seeds before dicing.

For an extra burst of flavor, sprinkle a pinch of salt on the watermelon before tossing it with the lime juice mixture.

Don’t over-mix the feta-mint mixture, or it’ll become too crumbly.

Just a gentle mix will do.

If you’re making this salad ahead of time, wait to add the feta-mint mixture until just before serving, so it stays fresh.

Feel free to customize the amount of honey and lime juice to your taste – some people like it sweeter, others like it tangier! To make this recipe more substantial, serve with some crusty bread or a side of quinoa or brown rice.
