Grilled Chicken Summer Salad

This is a good one!  I found it in the coupon section of the Sunday paper last weekend and just had to try it.  It was a hit with the family.

This recipe will serve three - adjust as needed.

1 cup bottled Poppyseed Dressing (divided)
3 boneless chicken breast halves
1 pkg (10 oz) Romaine Salad Blend or other variety
1 can (15 oz) Mandarin Oranges (drained)
1 cup sliced strawberries

Remove 1/4 cup dressing for chicken.

Grill or broil chicken 5 - 10 minutes on each side or until chicken is no longer pink in center, brushing occasionally with 1/4 cup reserved dressing.  Discard any remaining dressing.  Cut chicken crosswise into 1/2" thick slices.  (See my post for "Fool Proof Chicken Breasts")

Line 3 individual plates with salad blend.  Arrange chicken, mandarin oranges and strawberries over salad.  I use my Strawberry Slicer so all slices come out pretty and evenly.  Serve with remaining 3/4 cup of dressing.

I slice up 1/4 of a red onion and sprinkle thin slices over the top.

Oh, so good!
