  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • SALAD:
  • 1/2 cup diced apple
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1/4 cup fat-free plain yogurt
  • 1/4 cup fat-free mayonnaise
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

  • 1 celery rib, diced
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts, toasted
  • 1 green onion, chopped

  1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the first six ingredients; add chicken. Seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, toss apple with orange juice; set aside. In a large bowl, whisk the yogurt, mayonnaise and pepper until blended. Stir in the cantaloupe, peach, celery, raisins, walnuts, onion and apple mixture. Cover and refrigerate.
