This Grilled Chili Lime Chicken Salad is so incredibly delicious! We used a super simple marinade for the chicken, which comes out perfectly tender and juicy once grilled!



For the Salad

  • 1 1/2 lbs Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • 5 oz fresh Spinach
  • 2 Cucumbers chopped
  • 1 cup shredded Carrots
  • 1 cup chopped Red Cabbage

For the Marinade

  • 1/2 cup Sherry
  • 1/2 cup EVOO
  • Juice from 3 Limes
  • 2 Tbs Chili Powder
  • 8 cloves minced Garlic
  • 1 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper
  • Dash of Red Pepper Flakes

For the Dressing

  • 1 cup Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 1/4 cup fresh Cilantro
  • Juice from 1 Lime
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper


  1. In a small bowl mix together all of the ingredients for the marinade
  2. Add Chicken to a large ziplock bag and pour marinade over the Chicken
  3. Seal and lay bag flat so that all of the Chicken is covered by the marinade
  4. Refrigerate 30 min to 2 hours (the longer you marinade the more flavorful the Chicken will be)
  5. You can make the salad dressing while you are waiting for this to marinade
  6. In a food processor add all ingredients for the dressing
  7. Blend until smooth, taste and add more Salt or Pepper to your liking
  8. Pour dressing into a small container and seal with a lid
  9. Refrigerate until ready to use
  10. Heat grill to 450 degrees
  11. Place Chicken on grill, cover, and cook approximately 5 minutes each side
  12. Remove Chicken from grill and place on a platter
  13. Cover with tinfoil and let rest 10 minutes, this allows the Chicken to further cook on the inside and will keep it tender and juicy
  14. Add Spinach, Cucumbers, Carrots, and Cabbage to a large bowl or platter
  15. Chop the cooked Chicken and add it to the salad
  16. Pour desired amount of dressing over the salad
  17. Enjoy!


Cook time will vary depending on how thick your chicken breasts are. Always cook chicken until the thickest part of the breast reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees.

If you have left over dressing you can store it in an air tight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
