Grilled Chicken with a Strawberry, Goat Cheese and Sunflower Seed salad

Grilled Chicken, Strawberry, Goat Cheese and Sunflower Seed SaladI wanted to share with you one of my favorite Grilled Chicken Salads. It has been a challenge for me to find foods that are appetizing but this has been one of my favorite combos lately.

Not many people know this about me but I am a very decent self-trained chef. I actually seriously considered heading to culinary school instead of college. In that spirit, I have been doing a lot of reading about nutrition, eating and pregnancy and so if you are expecting, expect these recipes to always have added bonuses for you.

If you are not they are just freakin yummy!

PS: I am not use to taking pics with my food yet but I promise I will get better!

Instructions
  1. Clean chicken and cover in light italian dressing. Marinade for at least 30mins to an hour
  2. Heat grill to 400 degrees and grill chicken until the inside of your chicken reads at least 165 degrees. Let it rest for a couple of minutes.
  3. While the chicken is grilling, assemble your dressing. In a small bowl mix the honey, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper throughly. Once it is mixed add the EVOO in a smooth stream whisking the entire time. It should thicken and combine. Set aside
  4. Toss the spring mix, scallions and strawberries together. I prefer to toss the dressing in at this point to make sure everything is covered but you can drizzle it on later if you like less dressing.
  5. Heat sunflower seeds in a dry skillet or toast lightly making sure not to burn them.
  6. Assemble the salad on plates and sprinkle toasted sunflower seeds and goat cheese on top.
  7. Slice and add chicken to top of the salad.
Recipe Notes

If you are pregnant: Please make sure to cook your chicken throughly and get PASTEURIZED goat cheese.

Other than that enjoy! This is one of my favorite ways to sneak some folate into my diet.

  3. This sounds good! I don’t like strong cheese without something sweet. This sounds like a good balance!

  4. Sounds great – especially the dressing!

  5. This looks incredible. For a beginning food photograph you’re doing well too. Just always remember lots of light behind you and you can always style your food a bit. I’m clueless when it comes to this I just know from my cousin who has a food blog!

  6. Yum! Such a great salad, and I love that you mention what to do if you’re pregnant. The sunflower seeds sound like such a great addition.

  7. Sounds yummy. I think I might have to switch out goat cheese with feta. Awesome that you were thinking of culinary school!

  9. I’m adding this to my salad rotation. I’m not a big fan of salads because I’m usually hungry hours later but this looks so good and filling.
