To make grilled chicken:

  • Large size chicken breast
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • Grate one lemon (grated lemon to get the peel grated and in small pieces)
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • 2 garlic, finely chopped
  • salt to taste
  • Black pepper to taste
  • To make onion rings in the pneumatic machine:
  • Frozen onion rings bag (located in the supermarket freezer section) (for salad we need about 7 onion rings)
  • Olive Oil Spray
  • For salad work:
  • A grain of lettuce, half washed and chopped
  • 3/4 cup canned corn, drained from preservatives, thoroughly washed
  • 3/4 cup canned black beans, drained from preservatives, thoroughly washed
  • About 1/2 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup olives, halved
  • Chopped avocado
  • A pinch of low-fat ranch sauce to garnish the salad
  • A pinch of barbecue sauce with a little salt and sugar to garnish the salad
  • salt to taste
  • Black pepper to taste.


Step 1

Wash the chicken breast thoroughly and then dry it well from the water. In a large bowl, mix olive oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, oregano, garlic, salt and black pepper well. Bring the chicken breast and make holes scattered in it with a fork or knife and then put it in the marinade. Stir in the marinade and leave for about half an hour.

Step 2

In a household grill or in a pan with long lines. Add a little olive oil and then add the chicken breast. Leave on high heat for 5-7 minutes, turning it to the other side halfway through or until the water from the chicken dries and settles.

Step 3

Remove the chicken breast from the heat and put it in a dish and cut it into medium-sized cubes. Cover the chicken breast and leave until use.

Step 4

To make onion rings, heat the air machine to 350°F. Leave the onion rings to thaw them a little. Bring a small tray suitable for entering the air machine and place the onion rings next to each other. Delicious and Easy Grilled Chicken Salad Recipe with BBQ and Ranch Sauce

Step 5

Add a pinch of olive oil spray over the onion rings. Insert the tray into the air machine and leave them for 12 to 15 minutes or until they brown the onion rings from the top. Remove the onion rings and place them in a plate until use.

Step 6

In a large serving bowl, add the salad ingredients, which are chopped lettuce, corn, black beans, tomatoes, olives and avocados and mix well. Add the chicken cubes and a pinch of each of the BBQ sauce, ranch sauce, salt and black pepper and stir again.

Step 7
