Grilled Chicken Salad and Iced Mint Green Tea



Ingredients


  • Salad
  • 2 6-inch whole-wheat pitas, split
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons ground sumac (see Note), divided
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 large head romaine lettuce, coarsely chopped
  • 2 large tomatoes, diced
  • 2 small salad cucumbers or 1 large cucumber, seeded and diced (peeled if desired)
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced fresh mint
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed or equivalent amount of tofu.
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Preparation


Step 1
To prepare salad: Preheat oven to 350°F. Place pita halves rough-side up on a large baking sheet. Brush with 1 tablespoon oil and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon sumac. Bake until golden and crisp, about 15 minutes. When cool, break into bite-size pieces.
Step 2
Whisk lemon juice, salt, pepper and the remaining 2 tablespoons oil and 1/4 teaspoon sumac in a large bowl. Add lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, onion, mint and the pita pieces; toss to coat. Let stand for 15 minutes.
Step 3
To prepare chicken: Meanwhile, preheat grill to medium-high. Rub the chicken with oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill until no longer pink inside, 3 to 4 minutes per side. (Alternatively, broil chicken 4 to 6 inches from the heat source for about 6 minutes per side.) Slice the chicken thinly and serve on top of the salad.

Tips & Tricks


  • Note: The tart berries of the sumac bush add another element to many Middle Eastern dishes. Find them whole or ground in Middle Eastern markets or online at kalustyans.com or lebaneseproducts.com.

Prayers for Healing Update

Prayers for Healing (Prayers for Healing UPDATES) Hello Dear Ones,

When a believing person prays, great things happen. (James 5:16b NCV)
I've been giving thought to how to go about our prayer chain. I have decided to do an ongoing prayer post with updates and with Praises as they come in!

If you would like to be on this list, or if you would like me to post a prayer for you, please just let me know in the comments below in the Subject line put "Prayer Request", add the first name and last initial, prayer request and I will add it asap.

It has been said to me many times that, " if we don't know what to pray for, be it huge or small, we don't recieve the blessing that prayer will give the person who needs the prayer and the person praying". Please keep posing the prayer requests. All personal information is kept private.

We pray to you Lord Jesus Christ to…
