Ingredients

  • 2 chicken breasts boneless and skinless
  • 5 cups spinach
  • 4 mandarins peeled and separated
  • 1 avocado ripe and diced

Lemon Vinaigrette:

Instructions

  • Mix the vinaigrette ingredients together and pour 3/4 of it into a container, along with the chicken to marinate. Ideally, you should marinate the chicken overnight but a few hours is fine as well.
  • Heat a barbecue or grill pan to medium hot. Cook the chicken for 5-7 minutes on each side, then remove and set aside.
  • Separate the spinach between two plates. Top with the mandarin slices and avocado.
  • Slice the chicken and place one breast on top of each salad.
  • Drizzle the remainder of the vinaigrette over the salads.
