Grilled Chicken, Peach & Avocado Salad


For the chicken marinade:

  • 2 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus extra
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1-1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs

For the salad:

  • 2 heads butter lettuce, washed, torn
  • 2 peaches, pit removed and sliced
  • 2 Persian cucumbers, thinly sliced
  • 1 ripe avocado, cut into small cubes
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 ounces cherry tomatoes, halved

For the dressing:

  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped


  1. Mix the marinade ingredients together and add the chicken, turning to coat it on both sides. Marinate for 20 minutes.
  2. Heat a cast-iron skillet on high, and add 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Place marinated chicken in the skillet. Cook, turning once, about 10 minutes total. Remove from heat.
  3. Arrange lettuce in a large serving bowl, and top with the peaches, cucumbers, avocados, red onion and cherry tomatoes.
  4. Whisk together the dressing ingredients in a small bowl. To serve, slice the chicken against the grain and place on top of the salad. Toss with the dressing and season with salt and pepper as needed.
