Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon agave syrup
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • SALAD:
  • 2 cups fresh strawberries sliced
  • 8 oz sliced fresh mozzarella cheese
  • 1 avocado pitted and sliced
  • 4 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh basil

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, whisk olive oil, vinegar, mustard, agave, garlic, pepper, and salt until smooth. Divide mixture in half and pour one half into a plastic bag. Arrange chicken breasts in plastic bag, seal and refrigerate chicken at least 2 hours.
  • Remove chicken from marinade and discard marinade (keeping reserved half cold in fridge) Grill chicken over medium-high heat, turning once until chicken registers 165F, about 15 minutes. Once chicken is cool enough to handle, slice into strips. Set aside.
