Healthy Recipe: Grilled Teryaki Chicken With Light Salad

I wanted a lunch that was light yet still taste good and thats why i came up with this recipe! I first made the grilled teryaki chicken and then added it to the salad!

To make the chicken:-

The type of chicken i was using was boneless and skinless chicken breast which to me is the easiest! It was frozen and i left it to defrost for a couple of hours before i used it then soaked it in warm water to make sure that i got rid of any access dirt.

In a very hot pan i drizzled a little bit of olive oil and i while i waited for the olive oil to heat up, in a bowl i added a tablespoon of each of the following ingredients:
  • Soy Sauce
  • Maggi Food Seasoning Sauce
  • Sweet Soy Sauce (the brand is called indofood)
  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • Salt & Pepper
I mixed the ingredients together with a wisk and took the chicken out of the water and into the bowl with the sauces.

Let the chicken in the sauce until each piece is fully coated in the sauce.

Slowly add the chicken pieces in to the pan and because of how hot it should be, you should hear a sizzling sound so be careful when puting them in. It should cook pretty quickly so make sure you turn them so that they dont burn on one side!

Once they have browned from the outside make sure you cut in to one of them just to make sure its ready! Then carefully take it off the heat but keep them in the hot pan so that they don't get cold while your making the salad to go with the chicken.

To make the salad:-

I cut up a little bit of lettuce (i used the long lettuce instead of the round because i like them better) and i added a light dressing that has (#) tablespoons of:
  • 2 Tbls Lemon Juice
  • 1 Tbls Olive Oil
  • 1 Tbls Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2 Tbls Light Plain Yogurt

After you mixed the dressing with the salad, cut the chicken slices into small cubes and add them to the top of the salad and Enjoy!

I hope you try it out and please let me know how it goes in the comment below!
I haven't cooked chicken in a very long time and i was pretty proud of myself because this dish tasted really good! ;p

Thank You For Reading! :D



  1. It's amazing how you jump from a vegi to washing ur own meat/chicken!

    It looks delicious! I usually grill my chicken bdon la atabla! No salt, no lemon! But I should try this sometimes bdon the salad! :P

  2. It actually took a while to get used to even just eating chicken and meat but i guess i have to follow doctors orders and see whats best for me! And i still do prefer eating vegetarian dishes but i dont mind eating meat, seafood etc.

    I'm glad u liked the recipe and that your giving it your own twist. i hope you try it out and that you like how it turns out! :D
