For the salad:
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
4 cups mixed salad greens (such as spinach, arugula, or lettuce)
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
4 hard-boiled eggs, sliced
1/4 cup sliced almonds (optional, for added crunch)
For the dressing:
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat the grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper, and grill for about 6-8 minutes per side, or until cooked through. Remove from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes before slicing.
In the meantime, prepare the dressing by whisking together the olive oil, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Set aside.
In a large salad bowl, arrange the mixed greens, cherry tomatoes, sliced hard-boiled eggs, and sliced almonds (if using).
Slice the grilled chicken breasts into thin strips and place them on top of the salad.
Drizzle the dressing over the salad and gently toss to combine, ensuring all ingredients are coated.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
