Servings 4

Ingredients

  • 1 pkg (about 16 oz) {Foster Farms Simply Raised chicken breast strips}

  • 1/3 cup honey-Dijon-style mustard

  • 2 tbsps olive oil

  • ½ tsp salt

  • ¼ tsp black pepper

  • 2 medium ripe peaches, halved and pitted

  • 1 tbsp butter, melted

  • 6 cups spring-greens salad mixture

  • 1 cup fresh raspberries

  • 2 oz crumbled feta cheese

  • 1 recipe Honey Dijon Dressing (recipe below)


  • Honey-Dijon Salad Dressing Ingredients:

  • ½ cup olive oil

  • ¼ cup white wine vinegar

  • 2 tsps Dijon-style mustard

  • 2 tsps honey

  • Salt and black pepper to taste

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, whisk together the mustard, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Place the chicken breast strips in a plastic zip-top bag along with the mustard mixture. Seal out excess air, and turn the chicken to coat it evenly with the mustard mixture. Refrigerate 2 hours.

    2. Brush peach halves with the melted butter on all sides. Grill over medium-low heat for 4 to 5 minutes per side or until peaches are tender. Set aside.

    3. Remove the chicken strips from marinade, and reserve the remaining marinade. Grill the chicken strips on a covered grill directly over medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes. Turn the chicken strips, brush them with the reserved marinade, and discard the remaining marinade. Grill 3 to 4 minutes more or until the chicken is cooked through and no longer pink (170°F).

    4. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, mustard, and honey until smooth. Season to taste with salt and black pepper.

    5. Cut the peaches into thick slices. Divide the spring-greens mixture into four bowls. Top each bowl with some of the peach slices, the chicken tenders, raspberries, and crumbled feta. Serve the salad with the Honey Dijon Salad Dressing.
