    Prepare the Ingredients

    Lightly coat grill or grill pan with cooking spray. Preheat to medium-high heat. Peel onion and slice into ½" rounds. Zest lemon, halve, and juice. Stem and mince mint. Trim cucumber, quarter lengthwise, then cut into ¼" pieces. Season both sides of chicken breasts with a pinch of salt and seasoning blend. Drizzle chicken with ¼ tsp. olive oil.

    Grill the Chicken

    Place chicken on grill. Cook undisturbed 3-4 minutes. Flip and cook until chicken is charred and reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 3-4 minutes. Remove from grill and rest 3 minutes. Don't worry if chicken becomes very charred; it's supposed to!
