FOR THE VINAIGRETTE—
FOR THE CHICKEN—
FOR THE SALAD—
Find bags of Mediterranean blend salad mixes in the produce aisle—they’re typically a mixture of romaine, radicchio, and escarole.
Whisk together lemon juice, vinegar, and honey for the vinaigrette; continue whisking while you drizzle in oil. Season vinaigrette with salt and pepper; set aside.
Combine cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper for the chicken on a plate; coat both sides of chicken in cumin mixture. Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; sauté chicken on both sides until cooked through, 10–12 minutes. Let chicken rest 5 minutes, then slice.
Toss lettuces, cucumber, sweet peppers, chickpeas, olives, feta, scallions, parsley, and banana-pepper rings with chicken and vinaigrette in a bowl. Divide between two plates. Top with Garlic Croutons.
