Scale

Ingredients

  • 8 oz boneless skinless chicken breast
  • salt & pepper to season
  • 6 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 1 cup sliced strawberries
  • 1/3 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 cup broccoli florets
  • 1/2 cup mandarin oranges
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions

Honey Dijon Dressing:

  • 1 tablespoon whole grain mustard
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons raw honey
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry basil
  • salt & pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Heat a grill to medium high heat, about 350-375 degrees F.
  2. Season both sides of chicken with salt & pepper.
  3. Spray grill grates with cooking spray or rub down with olive oil soaked cloth.
  4. Place chicken on the grill. Grill chicken for 5-7 minutes per side, or until there is no longer any pink. (this will depend on the thickness of your chicken)
  5. Remove from grill and let rest on a cutting board for 5 minutes to let the juices redistribute.
  6. In the meantime, to a small bowl add: whole grain mustard, dijon mustard, honey, lemon juice, garlic clove, dry basil, salt and pepper. Whisk until smooth and looks like a dressing. Set aside.
  7. Assemble the salad: to a large bowl add baby spinach, strawberries, blueberries, broccoli, mandarin oranges, pecans and green onions. Top with sliced grilled chicken and drizzle with honey mustard dressing to serve.
