Grilled Chicken Salad


Sure, here’s the rephrased version:

  1. Preheat a grill pan or an outdoor grill to medium-high heat.
  2. Season the chicken with sea salt and pepper, and lightly coat it with oil. Place the chicken on the grill.
  3. Grill for approximately 5 minutes per side or until it’s thoroughly cooked and no longer pink in the center.
  4. Transfer the grilled chicken to a cutting board, cover it, and let it rest for a few minutes. Then, thinly slice it.
  5. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté the garlic and onions for about 6 minutes until they become soft and golden brown.
  6. Put the caramelized garlic and onions in a small blender, add the remaining extra virgin olive oil, cider vinegar, and lemon juice. Blend until you have a smooth mixture.
  7. Season the dressing with sea salt and pepper to your liking, then refrigerate it until you’re ready to use it.
  8. In a large salad bowl, arrange the lettuce, followed by the cooked chicken, tomatoes, corn, eggs, pecans, and diced avocado as shown.
  9. Just before serving, drizzle the dressing over the salad and gently toss everything together. Enjoy!
