Add this to your menu's...deliciously, yummy!

This recipe is from the Making the Cut book by Jillian Michaels. I have tried a few of hers so far and they are wonderful. Not sure if this is a breech of copyright, but I am giving her some free PR.

2 T. olive oil
2 T. fresh lime juice
2 T. mango chutney( I didn't use the chutney...just cut up mango!)
1 T. low-sodium soy sauce
¾ t. grated, peeled fresh ginger
4 (4 oz.) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
Cooking spray
8 cups mixed salad greens
1 cup diced, peeled mango
¾ cup diced, peeled avocado

1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
2. Combine oil, juice, chutney, soy sauce and ginger in a small bowl. Place chicken on large plate; spoon 2 T. of the oil mixture over the chicken, reserving the rest for the salad. Turn chicken to coat, and let stand 5 minutes.
3. Place chicken on the grill rack coated with cooking spray. Grill 4 minutes on each side or until chicken is done, brushing with oil mixture from plate before turning. Slice chicken crosswise into strips.
4. Arrange greens, mango, and avocado on 4 serving plates. Arrange chicken over greens. Drizzle reserved dressing over salads.

I love this brand of salad dressing! They have a strawberry vinegrette that I love even more! The only ones I have not tried yet are their honey mustard and poppyseed. Everything else is so amazing!

This is on the menu for Tuesday night. It'll be interesting to see what Alex says about it.
