Wash produce before use
Marinate the chicken
- Zest and juice the lime, keeping the zest and juice separate (the juice will be divided between the pickles and the salad dressing).
- Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel. Cut the chicken crosswise into ½-inch-thick strips; season lightly with salt and pepper.
While the chicken marinates, prepare the pickled cucumber and carrots.
Pickle the cucumber and carrots
- Cut the cucumber in half lengthwise, then crosswise into enough ¼-inch-thick half-moons to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
Cook the chicken
While the chicken cooks, start the salad.
