Easy Grilled Chicken Salad

I love meals that are quick and easy to make and that will leave leftovers for the next dinner so I don’t have to cook again. Here’s my at home “salad bar” with grilled chicken.

3 chicken breasts

romaine lettuce or spinach leaves (or whichever greens you like)
your choice of toppings – I like cucumbers, black olives, sunflower seeds, hard-boiled egg, potatoes, green beans, and croutons.



6 servings



(possibly more)



I used 3 chicken breasts and cut each in half lengthwise to make them thinner and quicker to cook. 
Grill the chicken and cut into strips or cubes.



Then just choose which greens and toppings you prefer. 
This is such an easy meal to make because you can always grill more chicken (or less) to have enough to last for many many meals or freeze the chicken to save for a future meal. 

Salads are so versatile.

It can be tailored to each person’s taste. My husband and daughter like tomatoes, but I don’t so I just don’t put them on my salad. 

Ever since I had a salad called a Nicoise salad ( it had potatoes and green beans) I realized I literally could put anything I liked on it, even green beans and potatoes! I’ve even put cooked cauliflower and broccoli in my salad. 

What out of the ordinary item have you put in your salad?





  1. Quick and easy! I will have to try this for my kids – they love chicken and will eat anything that I put on bread. LOL Thanks for sharing. :)

  2. I love chicken salad! YUM!

  3. OOO that sounds so yummy!! I too am all about the quick and easy!!

  4. Glad you guys like it! Salads can really be a filling and nutritious meal! I don’t use iceberg lettuce anymore since I heard that they have no nutritional value so I stick with romaine or spinach. And make sure you don’t drown your salad with dressing.

  5. I just love salads and this one looks great! I like to put fresh or dried fruits and pine nuts in my salad.

  6. OMGosh… I love Chicken Salad. Looks like I might be trying this out! =) Alexa hopping away! =)

  7. Sounds yummy! I’m not too adventurous when it comes to my salad but I sometimes put grapes in mine.
