8 green onions, trimmed
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 1/2 tablespoons white wine vinegar

How to Make It

Grate lemon rinds to equal 2 teaspoons; halve lemons crosswise and reserve. Combine rind, oregano, canola oil, and garlic in a large bowl. Add chicken; toss to coat.
Heat a grill pan over medium-high. Coat pan with cooking spray. Sprinkle chicken with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add chicken to pan; cook 5 minutes on each side or until done. Add lemon halves to pan, cut sides down; cook 4 minutes. Remove chicken and lemons from pan. Cut chicken into slices.
Coat asparagus and green onions with cooking spray; add to pan. Cook 3 to 4 minutes or until charred and tender, tuning occasionally. Cut asparagus and green onions into 2-inch pieces.
Combine remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper, olive oil, and vinegar in a large bowl. Add asparagus, green onions, and arugula; toss. Serve with chicken and lemon halves.
