Summer Lime Chicken Salad

With the start of a new year, most people are looking for recipes that are slightly healthier than the usual and deciding on lunch proves to be a challenge, especially with one sister on a detox, one sister on a diet and my mom who doesn’t eat red meat.

So without being too fanatical, I think this recipe is perfect following all the holiday indulgences.

I guess we can call it Summer Lime Chicken Salad…

Marinate the chicken breasts in olive oil, rosemary and the juice from 3 or 4 limes. Season with salt, pepper and paprika. We decided to place the chicken breasts on the outdoor gas braai but you can cook them on a grill or in a large frying pan.
