Grilled Chicken Salad



  • Mix all the marinade (except paprika) ingredients in a bowl and set aside

  • Place chicken in bowl and pour half of mixed marinade dressing over it and set aside the other half in fridge to be used later.

  • Sprinkle paprika and salt over chicken and rub mixture in, there's no set way to marinade chicken, you can add spices as you like, I like spicy so I add a little bit of black pepper. Cover chicken and place in fridge for 10 minutes.

  • While waiting for the chicken, chop up cucumber, tomatoes, avocado and olives and mix in a large salad bowl.
