For Chicken If Preparing From Scratch:
Place oils and balsamic in a medium bowl. Whisk until completely blended. Place half the mixture in a Ziploc bag. Add chicken breasts. Place in fridge for ½ to 1 hour. Remove breasts from bag. Place on a stove top grill pan. Cook 6 minutes, skin side down. Then flip and grill for another 5 minutes until done, brushing additional marinade mixture on chicken. Remove from grill pan and set aside.
Combine your salad ingredients in a large bowl. Pour dressing over salad, careful not to soak the ingredients. Toss gently until covered. Slice chicken breasts horizontally in 2-inch pieces. Place salad on plate. Place pieces chicken on salad. Serve with extra dressing. TIP: You can prepare the chicken on an outside BBQ, too.
