My family enjoys these flavors in the Balsamic Chicken and Fresh Mozzarella recipe from this site. I turned it into a salad with great results.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine 1/3 bottle of balsamic vinaigrette dressing with the chicken tenders in a bowl. Toss together sliced mushrooms with 1/3 bottle of dressing in a separate bowl. Reserve the remaining 1/3 bottle. Allow the chicken tenders and mushrooms to marinate for at least 30 minutes.

  • Preheat the oven's broiler, and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source.

  • Remove the chicken tenders and mushrooms from the marinade, and drain off the excess. Broil the chicken and mushrooms until the chicken is browned and cooked through, 5 to 8 minutes. Remove the chicken and mushrooms from the heat, and slice the chicken tenders into bite-sized pieces.

  • To serve, divide the chopped romaine lettuce between four plates, and top each with broiled chicken and mushrooms. Sprinkle each plate with cherry tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, and sliced basil leaves; serve with the remaining vinaigrette dressing.

I do the 5:2 diet and this salad fits perfectly into that plan for me! I had some leftover grilled chicken that I used instead of the tenders and some really nice Queen's Creek Balsamic Vinegar that I drizzled on top to reduce calories! I also season the salad with salt and freshly ground black pepper. It's great for the 5:2 diet lover! Read More

I made this for dinner and it was really good! I put my chicken and mushrooms on a foiled grill pan and let the grill do the rest. I also used fresh mozzarella cheese chunks. Everyone in the family enjoyed. This one's a winner. Read More

I left out the mushrooms and mozzarella because I don't like them and grilled my chicken after marinating. This is a great salad for a light lunch that doesn't leave you wanting for more. Read More
