Yield: 4
Prep Time: 5 Minutes
Cook Time: 30 Minutes

Ingredients


• 2 whole chicken breasts

• 2 pippin apples, cubed
• 4 handfuls baby salad greens
• balsamic vinaigrette

Instructions


Rub chicken with herbs, salt and pepper. Grill chicken for 10 minutes on each side, or until firm to the touch. Set aside. Toss greens and apples in vinaigrette and dot with goat cheese.
