Wash and tenderize the chicken breasts. Sprinkle with lemon pepper on both sides. Grill for 20 minutes. While the chicken is grilling, place the lettuce in a bowl. Peel and cut the avocado julienne style. Peel most of the cucumber skin leaving two small strips of skin on. Cut the cucumber lengthwise and chop into wedges. Add these to the lettuce bowl. Mix in half of the 1/4 cup of olive oil and set aside. Slice the cooked chicken and mix the rest of the olive oil in a separate bowl with the chicken. Mix the chicken mixture into the salad mixture and serve.
