Grilled Chicken Citrus Salad Recipe

Grilled Chicken Citrus Salad                   

l/2 cup minced cilantro
l/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
2 shallots, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon sugar
Four 4-ounce skinless boneless chicken breasts
8 cups torn romaine lettuce
2 navel oranges, peeled and sectioned
2 celery stalks, sliced
4 scallions, sliced

1. To prepare the marinade and salad dressing, in a medium bowl, combine the cilantro, the juices, shallots, garlic, chili powder, cumin and sugar; pour 1/2 cup of this mixture into a gallon-size sealable plastic bag; add the chicken. Seal the bag, squeezing out the air; turn to coat the chicken. Refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight, turning the bag occasionally. Pour the remaining dress­ing into a jar and refrigerate, covered, until ready to use.

2. In a large salad bowl, combine the lettuce, oranges, cel­ery and scallions; refrigerate, covered, until ready to use.

3. Preheat the broiler; line the broiler pan with foil. Drain the chicken and discard the marinade. Broil the chicken 5" from the heat, until cooked through, 5-6 min­utes on each side. Transfer to a board and slice diagonally.

4. Add the reserved dressing to the salad mixture; toss to coat. Top with the chicken.
