Ingredients

Chicken (Allow 1 hr for the chicken to marinate)

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast
  • ¼ cup Chick-fil-A Lemonade
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup water
  • 6 oz. butter lettuce leaves
  • ¼ cup frozen English peas
  • 4 radishes, thinly sliced
  • 1 carrot, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 4 strawberries, cut into wedges
  • 2 tablespoon toasted almonds, chopped

 

Dressing

  • ½ cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2 scallions, sliced
  • 4-5 basil leaves, finely minced (plus more for the salad, if you like)
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt


 

Directions
  • In a large plastic bag, place chicken, Chick-fil-A Lemonade, salt and water. Seal and gently shake the bag until everything is well combined and the chicken is evenly coated. Marinate in refrigerator for 1 hour.

  •  While the chicken is marinating, make the salad dressing by whisking together Greek yogurt, lemon juice, scallions, basil, extra virgin olive oil and salt. Store the dressing in refrigerator until ready to use.


 
  • Place chicken and marinade into small pot with tight-fitting lid. Bring to a boil, put the lid on pot and reduce heat to a simmer until chicken is thoroughly cooked (roughly 15 minutes). If liquid evaporates, add cup of water.

  • Allow chicken to cool and shred with fork into bite-size pieces.


 

  • Place lettuce in bowls and top with shredded chicken, peas, sliced radishes, sliced carrots, strawberries, almonds and basil leaves. Pour dressing and enjoy!
