As anyone who reads my blog can tell, I don’t exactly make super “health” foods….I mean don’t get me wrong, I eat a vegetable at every meal but to me the idea of eating a salad is like asking me if I want to get a root canal. Salads just don’t do it for me…..until this masterpiece came along! Alas, it is loaded with completely unhealthy components but you only live once and hell, I want my food to taste good. Follow the recipe below, but what I did was I marinated the chicken in a little Olive Oil, Canola Oil, some White Wine Vinegar, Salt and Pepper and let sit in the fridge for an hour. I then grilled it which gave great flavor. To make the Vinaigrette have a little more pop to it, add a drop of honey in!
