Grilled Chicken Summertime Salad

The great thing about summertime salads is there are so many fresh fruits available. So if strawberries or tangerines aren't your thing, swap them out for your favorites.

Recipe Type:

Chicken, Salad, Side, Appetizer

Degree of Difficulty:



  • 3 each chicken breast halves boneless, skinless
  • 9 oz Romaine lettuce leaves
  • 1 cup tangerines (mandarin oranges)
  • 1 cup Strawberries, sliced
  • 1/4 cup almonds, slivered
  • 1/4 cup Lawry's Herb & Garlic marinade


  1. Place chicken breasts in a container. Pour marinade on top and cover.
  2. Place in refrigerator for at least one hour (I like to marinade over night as it makes chicken really tender).
  3. Fire up the grill (or broiler). Place chicken on grill and discard excess marinade.
  4. Cook chicken breasts for approximately 5 - 10 minutes on each side (or until chicken is no longer pink).
  5. Let chicken cool for about 15 minutes.
  6. Cut chicken breasts into 1/2 thick slices.
  7. Place leafy lettuce on the dinner plates.
  8. Arrange chicken strips, tangerines and strawberries on top.
  9. Sprinkle on the almond slivers.
  10. Serve with your favorite dressing on the side.

The lettuce, fruits and skinless chicken breasts were not used when calculating the Freestyle SmartPoints. The lettuce and fruits were not used when calculating remaining Weight Watchers points values.


If you want to make this a zero SmartPoints recipe, just eliminate the slivered almonds. I personally like almonds so am willing to use the 3 points.
