Ingredients

  • 16 ounces boneless skinless chicken breast
  • ¼ cup Dijon Vinaigrette - plus more for dressing
  • 1 tablespoon Kosher salt
  • ½ tablespoon black pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves - minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil - for grilling
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes - sliced in half
  • 1 avocado - chopped (about ¼ avocado per salad plate)
  • 3-4 cups mixed greens - I used a romaine, and spring mix

Instructions

  • First, prepare vinaigrette. To a large bowl, or resealable bag, add ¼ cup of vinaigrette, chicken breast, salt, pepper and garlic. Toss to coat well. Marinate for 1-2 hours.
  • While the chicken marinates, make the bacon. Once done, allow to cool and roughly chop. Set aside.
  • To a grill plan, add 1 tbsp olive oil (make sure it is for high heat) on medium high heat. Once hot, add chicken breast, grill for about 6-8 minutes, and flip, cooking for 4-5 more minutes, depending on thickness (should be 165F).
  • Remove chicken from pan and allow to rest 5 minutes. Chop and set aside.
  • Divide lettuce between four plates then top with chopped bacon, tomatoes, chopped avocado, and chicken. Serve with additional dijon vinaigrette.
