Serves: 4
Ingredients
1 jar (8 oz.) Classico® Sun-dried Tomato Pesto Pasta Sauce
1 cup olive oil
1 cup Heinz® Balsamic Vinegar
1 tbsp minced garlic
3 tbsp sugar
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halve, about 4 oz. each
10 oz. mixed salad greens, or about 8 cups
1 cup sliced or chopped cucumber
1 cup thinly sliced red onion
Instructions
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together oil, Vinegar, Pesto Sauce, garlic and sugar. Season with salt and pepper to taste if desired. Pour 1 cup into a plastic resealable bag for marinating and reserve remaining 1-1/2 cups for salad dressing. Place chicken into bag, turning until evenly coated. Close bag and marinate in refrigerator for 1 hour, or overnight if desired, turning occasionally.
  2. Preheat grill on medium heat. Remove chicken from refrigerator, discarding marinade and bag. Grill chicken for 8 to 12 minutes, or until cooked through and internal temperature reaches 165°F, turning occasionally. Allow to cool for 5 minutes and cut into slices.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine salad greens, cucumber and onion. Pour in reserved salad dressing and toss until well coated. Divide between 4 plates and top with sliced chicken.
Tips

  • If preferred, place marinade/salad dressing ingredients in leak-proof jar or container, and shake vigorously until well mixed.
