Experimenting With Marinades

16 May

Chicken Salad for lunch! Yum! I’m trying to treat my body right and get back to eating healthier so I tried to make a salad similar to Burger Kings Chicken, Apple, Cranberry Salad (from memory and my memory forgot a few details like apples).

Doesn’t it look delicious! Well I’ve eaten it several times and it is definitely delicious! I am not any good at making recipes but here are the details of what I did. I covered the chicken breasts in Newman’s Own Lite Raspberry Walnut dressing and let them sit for about an hour. I poked them a few times with a fork just to make sure they had fully defrosted. They hadn’t so I defrosted them a few more seconds in the microwave. I set my George Foreman grill to 350 and let it heat up. I sprinkled a bit of sea salt and pepper on top of the chicken still in the marinade. Then once the grill was ready I put them on and sprinkled the other side with some sea salt and pepper.

This was my first time marinating chicken in salad dressing and I wanted to make sure they didn’t come out dry and flavorless. I just barely finished checking out a section in The Science of Good Cooking on marinating which is why I chose to add some salt.

I grilled them on the George Fireman grill for six minutes. Then I flipped them (for aesthetic purposes) and grilled for 6 more minutes. They were very juicy!


Next I sliced them up and set up a build your own salad buffet at the dinner table only I forgot about the apples and we don’t eat a lot of cheese around here. We used romaine hearts and the most delicious croutons ever because I wanted a bit of crunch. After the first bite I remembered that I usually add pecans to my salad at Burger King not croutons but it was still delicious! What are you eating today?
