Grilled Chicken Salad
Brush chicken breasts with olive oil, and sprinkle with dried thyme, salt and pepper. Sear on a greased grill (or in an oven-proof skillet) on each side for 2-3 minutes until lightly browned. Transfer to a 425°F. oven to finish cooking for 15-20 minutes or until a meat thermometer shows an internal temperature of 165°F. Remove from oven, tent with foil and let rest for 10 minutes
While chicken is cooking, arrange salad greens, vegetables, pecans and blackberries in bowls.
Top with sliced chicken breasts and drizzle with Blackberry Balsamic Dressing.
This recipe makes a fairly thick dressing. If you'd like it thinner, add a few tablespoons of water to the blender mix, one at a time, until you've reached the desired consistency.
