Grilled Chicken Salad with Pineapple and Bell Pepper

  • Yield 6 servings


1 1 1/2 pounds broiler-fryer chicken tenders
2 tablespoons prepared mustard
2/3 cup pineapple juice
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
1 bunch leaf lettuce
14 ounces pineapple tidbits
3 Anaheim peppers, silced in rings
1 small onion, sliced in rings
1/2 cup almond slices, toasted
1/4 cup sesame seeds, toasted


  1. In saucepan, place mustard and stir in pineapple juice slowly to prevent lumping.  Add soy sauce, vinegar and honey; place over high heat and bring to a boil.
  2. Place chicken in a bowl and pour over warm sauce; cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour.
  3. Remove chicken from marinade.  Place marinade in small saucepan and boil 3 minutes.
  4. Place chicken on prepared grill (or broiler rack) about 6 inches from heat.  Cook, turning and basting with boiled marinade, about 6 minutes or until fork can be inserted in chicken with ease.
  5. To assemble salad, arrange lettuce on a plate; then add pineapple, pepper rings and onions.  Sprinkle with almonds and sesame seeds.  Top with chicken tenders and spoon remaining marinade over all.
