Total time: 20 minutes

  • 3/4       pound boneless, skinless O Organics chicken breasts
  • 1/4       teaspoon salt
  • 1/8       teaspoon black pepper
  • 2          teaspoons O Organics extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1          package (5 ounces) O Organics spring mix

  • 1          tablespoon O Organics balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2       log (4 ounces) O Organics goat cheese

Pat chicken dry with paper towels and place on cutting board. Cut chicken in half horizontally to form thin cutlets. Season with salt and pepper on both sides.

Preheat the grill pan, outdoor grill, or skillet to medium-high heat.

Once the pan is hot, coat it with oil. Add chicken to pan and grill, turning once, until cooked through, 3-4 minutes per side.

Wash and dry mixed greens. Place them in a medium bowl.

Wash and dry blueberries. Add to bowl with mixed greens. Using a clean cutting board, roughly chop pecans. Add to bowl.

Transfer cooked chicken to a cutting board and cut it into thin strips.

In a bowl, mix olive oil and balsamic vinegar to create dressing.

Add chicken and dressing to a salad bowl; toss to combine.

To serve, divide the salad between plates or bowls and crumble goat cheese over top. ISI
