Grilled Chicken Breast Salad

This is a delicious, low calorie salad that is very quick to prepare. The chicken has a nice kick from all of the spices and the lemon juice in the salad dressing really complements it well. It is nice and light and is also kind to your waste line. It is perfect for an after work meal when you get home and don't have a lot of time to prepare something more complicated.
