Broccoli and Chicken Salad

Posted on

I started to make this salad with the intention of it being a main dish, but I feel now, after eating it, that it would be better suited as a side dish. It  was too much as a main dinner entree.

P.S. Stay tuned to this space for an upcoming giveaway from Frito-Lay!

Ingredients:

1/2 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
2 cups  fresh broccoli florets
3/4 cup seedless red grapes halves
1/3 cup  KRAFT Coleslaw Dressing
1/8 cup PLANTERS Sunflower Kernels
Directions:
1. Heat large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 5 min. or until done, stirring occasionally.

2. Toss chicken with remaining ingredients in large bowl.

3. Refrigerate at least 30 min. before serving.

Makes 3 servings.

Chicken-Berry Salad

Posted on

I really enjoyed this salad. I had it as my meal for dinner and it was certainly filling. The best part about this salad is that you can change the ingredients to suit your tastes or what you have on hand. Swap out the blueberries for another berry; try a different dressing; add some cheese, etc. The possibilities are endless.

Ingredients:

4 cups torn salad greens

1/2 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cooked, cut in strips (I used ready-made, cooked strips.)

1 cup fresh blueberries

4 oz. fresh sugar snap peas

1/8 cup honey roasted pecans

1/2 cup Italian dressing

Directions:

1. Toss greens with all remaining ingredients except dressing in large bowl.

2. Add dressing just before serving; mix lightly.

Makes 3 servings.
