The crispy and fruity chicken salad is refreshing served for lunch, dinner or a potluck supper—either warm or cold. For an easy change of pace, I suggest using a bottled salad dressing.—Darlene Brenden, Salem, Oregon
"This moist, tender chicken grills up in just minutes," assured Joyce Pruitt of Jacksonville, Florida. "With only two ingredients, the marinade couldn't be simpler, yet it gives the chicken wonderful flavor. I've shared this recipe many times over the years."
Meet the Cook: Back in the 1950's, I was a home economist for the electric company, which is how I came across this recipe. During spring and summer, when it is hot here, my family especially likes it. (My husband and I have two children and a pair of granddaughters, all grown.)
I've also found this chicken salad is good for women's luncheons and covered-plate meals since it's so different.

The garlic and lemon-pepper really come through in this quick stir-fry. Serve the colorful combination on a bed of rice or over chow mein noodles for fun crunch. For dessert pour cream over sliced fresh peaches or serve easy fudge brownies.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
