Healthy Grilled Chicken Salad

Wine Pairing​

This easy grilled chicken salad has the perfect amount of creaminess that melts in your mouth. This delicious chicken recipe is a perfect light lunch and dinner for those who are following a low-calorie diet and for those who want to eat a lighter meal at dinner.

Chicken thighs are a full-flavored piece of meat. The best thing about this piece of the chicken is that doesn’t dry out easily.  This delicious piece of meat has a slightly higher fat content than other chicken parts. You can marinate the chicken for up to 2 days to allow the flavor to develop even more. Just make sure that it is in the refrigerator the whole time.

This recipe is a variation on salads that use chicken breast as a protein. Adding chicken breast to the salad recipes is a classic move. However, the thighs are in this recipe because they are juicier. 

You can add tasty zucchini, steamed broccoli and cauliflower as a healthy addition. You may also add nuts such as walnuts, almonds, and pecans to this salad recipe too.

You can remove the cayenne pepper if you are not fond of heat or spiciness. Substitute lemon juice for other citrus fruits or vinegars of all types, ranging from grapefruit to balsamic vinegar, to give you a wide range of flavor profiles.

Savor this tasty grilled chicken salad with tasty white wine as a refreshing accompaniment to this tasty salad. Check out these wines to pair with these delicious recipes!
