Sesame Chicken Over Greens Recipe

Sesame Chicken Over Greens Recipe

"My teenage sons can't get enough of this dish," confides Diana Mullins of Lexington, Kentucky. "I like it, too. The grilled chicken strips make the salad hearty enough for a meal...but the assorted fresh veggies keep it nice and light."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + marinating Grill: 10 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium teriyaki sauce
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1 pound)
  • 5 cups torn mixed salad greens
  • 1/2 cup sliced sweet red pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrot
  • 4 green onions, sliced
  • 1 can (2-1/4 ounces) sliced ripe olives, drained
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat ranch salad dressing
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted

Directions

  • 1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the first six ingredients. Add chicken; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for several hours or overnight.
