In honor of the upcoming Holiday weekends, and inevitable BBQ’s we will all be attending this summer, I decided to share, for the next 4 days a great Side Dish recipe a day.  Each recipe will prove to be a unique and wonderful addition to add to any event.  So let’s get started!

Today’s recipe is:

APPLE, CHICKEN and STILTON SALAD

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • 2 (5 to 6-oz) Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 (5-oz) pkg. fresh baby spinach (about 4 cups)
  • 1 large Braebum apple, halved,cored, and thinly sliced
  • 1 cup pecans or walnuts toasted
  • 1/2 cup light balsamic vinaigrette
  • 2 oz. Stilton cheese, crumbled (1/4 cup)
  • (Additional balsamic vinaigrette optional)

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:

1. Coat a large grill pan or nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray.  Place over medium heat.  Add chicken; cook 5 to 6 minutes per side or until an instant-read thermometer registers 165 degrees F. Remove from heat.  Slice chicken into strips; set aside.

2. In a large bowl combine spinach, apple slices, walnuts and vinaigrette; toss to coat. Place salad on 4 plates; season with salt and pepper to taste.

3. Top each salad evenly with chicken and 1 tablespoon of the crumbled cheese. Drizzle with additional vinaigrette (if desired) and serve immediately.

It’s THAT easy!  For a larger party simply adjust ingredient amount.

Enjoy!
