Meal Idea: Rosemary Grilled Chicken with Squash & Zucchini Salad

I wasn't starving tonight so I cooked a very light and full-of-flavor dinner. The grilled chicken was well complimented by a light, raw squash & zucchini salad (for lack of a better term).


  • 1 chicken breast (1/2 pound)
  • Rosemary, thyme, Tony Chachere's, onion powder, garlic powder, black peper
  • 1 raw squash, chopped
  • 1 raw zucchini, chopped
  • 2 slices of red onion, chopped
  • A handful of fresh cilantro
  • A squeeze of fresh lemon
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1-2 TBSP red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp Dijon mustard
  • Chicken
    • Season chicken generously with spices.  Use fresh rosemary and thyme if available.
    • Grill chicken
  • Squash & Zucchini salad
    • Chop squash and zucchini into small pieces
    • Chop cilantro and red onion and add to mixture
    • In a separate bowl, combine olive oil, vinegar, and mustard
    • Add 'dressing' to veggie mixture
    • Squeeze lemon juice in veggie mixture and stir
    • Add Tony's to taste
  • Note: After I cut my grilled chicken into smaller pieces, I tossed the chicken with 1 TBSP of BBQ sauce (a mere 25 extra calories and 6 carbs).
  • Enjoy!
