I just made the most delicious dinner! In 15 minutes!

I was under a crunch to make something quickly for my husband. This took 15 minutes from start to finish and it truly is delicious. I haven't had a better tasting meal in a restaurant in a while. I just threw it all together on a whim.

Boneless Chicken Breast (I only used one but it was huge)
Olive Oil
Package McCormick's Mojito Lime marinade seasoning (I see online it comes in glass bottles too)
Makings for a salad (I used red leaf lettuce, onions, cucumbers, radishes, tomatoes because that's all I had)
Raspberry Vinaigrette Salad dressing (I was going to use a new tangerine vinaigrette, but I tasted it with my finger and hated it)

Put a few tablespoons of olive oil in skillet medium heat
Cut boneless chicken breast into 1/4 inch slices
Cover chicken breast with DRY Mojito Lime seasoning and put in skillet
Cut up salad and put in bowl -- turning chicken breasts as needed and turning heat up on high
Arrange salad on plates
Sprinkle with Raspberry Vinaigrette
Spoon chicken breasts on top of salad
Drizzle oil and seasoning from skillet onto salad
Call it dinner!

It really was fantastic! I think it has a richer taste using the marinade seasoning directly instead of watering it down in a marinade. Plus, it wouldn't take 15 minutes if you have to think ahead to do a marinade. I never remember to marinade ahead of time.

I hope someone makes it. I'm interested in hearing what you think.

That does sound tasty - chicken salad is one of my favorites.

Thanks for posting!

Hopes, have been making that for a while with all different kinds of salad dressings and also rubs. I use a key west lime rub that I have not been able to find again that was outrageous. I have tried others and they are good too.

Thanks for the recipe, starting next week both Hubby and me are on proteins and salads for as long as we can take it. So this one is on the list for menu ideas! Sounds really good.

Sounds good, for summer. I can't wrap my head around eating a salad when it is below zero outside!

I wondered if salad intake was reduced during winter months:

I have "re-trained" my brain when it comes to winter salads. Just yesterday I had a HUGE Caesar's Salad. I think that during the winter months more creative salads are the key.
