Chicken with watermelon salsa recipe

Makes 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 (4 oz.) skinless chicken breasts, cooked and cooled
  • 2 Tbsp. olive or canola oil
  • 1 Tbsp. steak seasoning

Salsa:

  • 1 cup diced fresh watermelon
  • 1 cup diced cucumber
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans 
  • 1 cup crispy cooked bacon, crumbled

Dressing:

  • Zest of 1 lime
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 head leaf lettuce 
  • 4-6 oz. crumbled feta cheese, if desired

Preparation

In a large sauté pan, heat oil over medium heat. Place four chicken breasts in pan and season to taste with steak seasoning. Cook until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees, about 10-15 minutes. Set aside to cool.

Prepare watermelon salsa by combining watermelon, cucumber, nuts, and bacon. Gently toss and set aside.

Plate cooled chicken breast on leaf lettuce and cover with ¼ cup salsa. Crumble ¼ cup feta on top and sprinkle with lime zest. Finish by squeezing remaining lime juice over entire plate.

*Note: to keep salsa from appearing soggy and losing its crunch, add feta, nuts and bacon to melon and cucumber right before plating entrée.
