Raspberry Chicken Salad Recipe

Raspberry Chicken Salad Recipe

"This pretty summer salad is a snap to make, but it looks as though you fussed," writes Sue Zimonick of Green Bay, Wisconsin. The slightly tart dressing also serves as a basting sauce, which gives the thin slices of tender chicken breast a nice fruit flavor.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup 100% raspberry spreadable fruit
  • 1/3 cup raspberry vinegar
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 8 cups torn mixed salad greens
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 24 fresh raspberries

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine spreadable fruit and vinegar; set aside 3/4 cup for dressing. Broil chicken 4 in. from the heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 170°, basting occasionally with remaining raspberry mixture. Cool for 10 minutes.
  • 2. Meanwhile, arrange greens and onion on salad plates. Slice chicken; place over greens. Drizzle with reserved dressing. Garnish with raspberries. Yield: 4 servings.
