Ingredients

4 boneless, skinless chicken breast(s)
1 tsp (5 mL) soy sauce
2 tbsp (30 mL) extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp (30 mL) cilantro, fresh
1 tbsp (15 mL) ginger, minced
2 cloves garlic
1/2 tsp (2.5 mL) hot red chili pepper flakes
2 yellow pepper(s), large
3 tbsp (45 mL) rice vinegar
5 1/2 cups (1.375 L) mixed salad greens

Directions

  1. Mince fresh cilantro. In a large bowl, whisk together soy sauce, half of the oil, cilantro, ginger and garlic and pepper flakes. Add chicken breasts and toss to coat well. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to one day.
  2. Meanwhile, cut peppers into quarters. Preheat grill using medium-high heat. Grill peppers for about 15 minutes until they just start to blacken. Remove to plate. Place chicken breasts on greased grill over medium-high heat and grill for 10-15 minutes per side or until a thermometer inserted into the breast reads 165°F (74°C).
  3. Chop the warm grilled peppers and chicken into ½ inch wide strips. In large salad bowl, toss chicken and peppers with greens and remaining oil and vinegar.
