Get in my belly: Grilled Chicken Salad

Love the freshness of this salad!


Smoky charred chicken combines with bright peas and herbs in a salad that's fresh and hearty. Grilling the chicken ahead of time makes it even easier to put together. {Martha Stewart}


Prep Time: 35 minutes
Total Time: 2 hours 35 minutes
Serves 8 to 10

Ingredients
@Dana Gallager

3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, divided
2 tablespoons plus 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice (from 3 or 4 lemons), divided
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon minced garlic (4 cloves), divided
5 boneless, skinless chicken-breast halves (10 to 11 ounces each)
12 chicken drumsticks
2 cups shelled fresh peas (from 2 pounds in pods)
2 tablespoons minced shallot
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon coarse salt
1/2 cup chopped fresh mint leaves, plus 1/2 cup packed fresh mint leaves (from 2 bunches)
1 to 2 heads butterhead lettuce such as Bibb or Boston, trimmed and separated into leaves

Directions

Whisk together 1/4 cup oil, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon garlic. Pour over chicken, and refrigerate 2 hours.

Cook peas in a large pot of boiling water until just tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Drain, and submerge in ice water to stop the cooking and retain color.

Preheat grill to medium-high heat or set up grill for indirect heat. Remove chicken from marinade, and grill chicken, turning often, until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees, 15 to 20 minutes for drumsticks and 20 to 25 minutes for breasts. Let cool, and refrigerate until ready to serve. Just before serving, cut chicken breasts into thick slices.

Whisk together remaining 1/2 cup oil, 1/3 cup lemon juice, and 1 teaspoon garlic, the shallot, mustard, salt, and chopped mint in a medium bowl. Arrange lettuce, whole mint leaves, and peas on a large serving platter. Toss chicken in dressing, and arrange on salad. Pour remaining dressing over salad.
