1 chicken breast

salt and pepper to taste


1 lime, juiced

Trim, wash and cut the lettuce into bite sized pieces. Transfer to a large bowl. Prepare the marinade by combining the lime-juice, cilantro and salt and pepper. Whisk in olive oil to create an emulsification and let sit.

Prepare the fruits and marinate in the dressing while cooking the chicken.

Add the marinated fruit and chicken to the bowl of lettuce and toss to combine. Garnish with additional cilantro leaves.
