Servings
Ingredients Directions
  1. Prepare the Jerk Rub by mixing all the dry spice ingredients in a small bowl.
  2. Rinse the chicken and pat it dry with paper towels. Use your fingers to rub both sides of the chicken with some of the rub. Set aside for 15-30 minutes. For more intense flavoring, cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.
  3. Spray a broiler pan with the cooking spray. Place the chicken in the pan and spray tops lightly with the olive oil spray.
  4. Broil 6 inches under a preheated broiler for 12-15 minutes, turning occasionally, until the meat is browned. If grilling, grill the chicken in the same manner over medium coals.
  5. Remove the chicken to a cutting board and let sit for 5 minutes. Slice thinly across the grain and set aside.
  6. Toss the lettuce with the celery and carrots. Arrange one quarter of the mixture on each of 4 plates. Arrange some of the onion and green pepper rings over the lettuce on each plate.
  7. Sprinkle each salad with 2 tablespoons of the cheese and 1 tablespoon each of raisins and nuts. Top with the sliced chicken breast. Accompany with some of the dressing and serve immediately.
