Warm Lemon Pepper Chicken Salad

Served warm, this main dish salad gets its fresh flavor from our Lemon Pepper Rub.


  • 8 oz (250 g) sugar snap peas
  • 1 1/2 lbs (750 g) “"B"” size red potatoes
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) salt
  • 4   boneless, skinless chicken breasts (4 oz/125 g each)
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) Lemon Pepper Rub, divided
  • 1   lemon
  • 1   garlic clove, pressed
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) olive oil
  • 1 medium red bell pepper
  • 1/2 small red onion
  • 1 jar (6 oz/170 mL) marinated artichoke heart quarters, drained
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) chopped fresh parsley (optional)


  1. Place peas and 1/4 cup (50 mL) water into Large Micro-Cooker®. Microwave, covered, on HIGH 2-3 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain using small Stainless Mesh Colander; rinse under cold water and set aside. Slice potatoes using Ultimate Mandoline fitted with v-shaped blade. Place potatoes, salt and enough water to cover into Micro-Cooker®. Microwave, covered, on HIGH 13-16 minutes or until tender, stirring twice; drain and set aside.

  2. Meanwhile, heat Grill Pan over medium heat 5 minutes. Rub chicken with 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the rub. Spray pan with olive oil using Kitchen Spritzer. Cook chicken 7–-9 minutes or until Digital Pocket Thermometer registers 165°F (74°C) and juices run clear, turning once. Remove from pan; set aside and keep warm.

  3. For dressing, juice lemon to measure 2 tbsp (30 mL). Combine juice, remaining rub and garlic pressed with Garlic Press in Small Batter Bowl. Slowly add oil, whisking constantly; set aside.

  4. Thinly slice chicken, bell pepper and onion using Santoku Knife. Combine peas, chicken, bell pepper, onion, artichokes and parsley, if desired, in Stainless (6-qt./6-L) Mixing Bowl; mix well. Add potatoes and dressing; toss gently. Serve warm.
