  • Roll lemons and limes on a cutting board to release the juices; cut in half and squeeze 1/2 of the juice onto chicken breasts. Sprinkle with 1/2 of the lemon-pepper seasoning, and let marinate for about 5 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Toss lettuce, carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers, and green onions together in a large salad bowl.

  • Turn marinated chicken over and sprinkle other side with remaining lemon-pepper seasoning.

  • Cook chicken on the preheated grill until no longer pink in the centers and juices run clear, 5 to 7 minutes per side.

  • Cut chicken into long strips and place on salad. Squeeze remaining lemon and lime juice on salad at the last minute before serving.
