Grilled Chicken with Tomato and Cucumber Salad - Weekend Recipe

Make this grilled chicken with a salad you make with farm-fresh veggies for a quick and light dinner.

Grilled Chicken with Tomato and Cucumber Salad

1 clove garlic
1 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more to taste
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 lemon, juiced (about 1 tablespoon) or use 1 Tbls lemon herbed vinegar
1 cup tomatoes, sliced in rounds
1 cucumber, unpeeled, quartered lengthwise and sliced
3 pepperoncini peppers, stemmed and minced
1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
Freshly ground black pepper

Grilled Chicken:
4 chicken breast halves, about 4 ounces each
Olive oil spray
Freshly ground black pepper

Smash the garlic clove, sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of salt and with the flat side of a large knife, mash and smear to a coarse paste. Put the garlic paste in a large bowl and stir in the olive oil and lemon juice. Add the tomatoes, cucumber, pepperoncini, and dill and toss. Give a couple of generous grinds of black pepper. Toss again, and set aside.

Preheat a grill pan or nonstick skillet to medium high. Spray the chicken breasts lightly with the olive oil and season with salt and black pepper. Grill the chicken, in batches if necessary, to avoid crowding the pan, turning once, until cooked through, about 2 minutes per side. Place each breast on a plate and serve topped with the tomato-cucumber salad.
