Balsamic Chicken Salad
1 1/2- 2 lbs thinly sliced chicken breast
1 red onion, thinly sliced
1 heaping cup sliced roasted red peppers
a handful of parsley, rough chopped
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
2 Tbsp olive oil
salt & pepper
Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Grill for a few minutes, depending on thickness, on each side until the chicken is cooked through. Allow to rest a few minutes before cutting into a large dice.
While the chicken is cooking cut up the onion, roasted peppers and parsley. Toss into a bowl along with the diced chicken, olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Season with salt and pepper.
