My Favorite Meals (part 2)
YESSSSSSS! I had this one for dinner tonight...it was GOOD!!
Chicken and Zucchini Salad (makes 2)
2 broiled or grilled chicken breasts
2 small zucchini (about 8-9 oz. total), thinly sliced long ways
1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
about 4 cups of mixed baby greens OR really good with Arugula
Salt free seasoning like Mrs. Dash
For dressing: 2 Tbsp olive oil, 4 Tbsp balsamic vinegar, 1/2 tsp brown mustard, sprinkle of salt-free seasoning
What you do...
Cook your chicken and put it aside :) Cook your zucchini, red peppers and onions in a pan over med heat with PAM or another non-stick cooking spray. If you must, you can use a teeny bit of olive oil to coat the pan. Wipe off any oil :) Cook for about 1-2 min and then add salt free seasoning to taste, garlic powder to taste and 3 Tbsp of Balsamic vinegar to the pan. Continue cooking veggies for about 2-3 more min or until zucchini is tender. Remove from heat and let cool for a little bit.
In the meantime, make the dressing!!! Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl or cup or something and stir with a whisk or a fork. Set aside.
Get out your plates for the salad and put the greens or arugula on the plates. After the veggie mixture has cooled down a little, add it on top of the greens. Then put the chicken breast on top (you can slice the chicken breast if you want before you add it to the salad). Put half of the dressing on each salad.
