Cilantro-Lime Chicken Salad

READY IN: 1hr 16mins
Recipe by emmalee1942

This is a recipe I developed and submitted to another website, Chicken breasts are cubed, stir-fried and added to a cilantro, lime juice, honey, and garlic dressing. Serve on a salad of mixed field greens, or over Jasmine Rice. Wrap in a flour tortilla or lettuce leaves for a lunch on-the-go. The prep time includes marinating time.

Great chicken and very versatile. I took Jociecee's suggestion and added a little olive oil, garlic and cilantro to the marinade and used that as the dressing. It would also be great hot with rice and vegetables.

  1. Combine the lime peel strip, soy sauce, and chicken cubes. Place in a resealable plastic bag and marinate 1 hour, or longer.
  2. Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Remove the chicken from the marinade and discard the marinade.
  3. Stir-fry the chicken cubes in the olive oil, until opaque and slightly browned.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the lime juice, olive oil, honey, garlic, salt, and pepper. Stir in the chopped cilantro. Mix well, pour over the chicken.
