Cooking chicken on a hot grill (or grill pan) sears the surface of the food, giving it a full, intense flavor. For fast meals at lunch or dinner, try thinly pounded chickenbreasts because they cook through in just a few minutes.

  • Lay chicken flat. Holding a sharp knife parallel to work surface, split each chicken breast in half horizontally. Cover with plastic wrap and pound each piece with the flat side of a meat mallet or the bottom of a small pan until 1/4 inch thick. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons dressing and sprinkle with cumin.

  • Clean and oil grill. Grill chicken until cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes per side. To bowl with dressing, add watercress, radishes, and avocado and toss to combine. Serve chicken topped with watercress salad.

The marinade is perfect for the chicken, but it's a little too lemon-y for my taste to be used as a dressing so I left it out. This is such a good, easy meal and I make it all the time when I want something quick and healthy!
