Author: 
Serves: 2 Servings
 
Ingredients
  • Chicken breast – 1, medium
  • Avocado – 1, medium
  • Red bell pepper – 1, medium
  • Yellow bell pepper – 1, medium
  • Balsamic vinegar – 1 tbsp
  • Salt to taste
For Dressing
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Rice wine vinegar – 2 tsp [optional]
Instructions
  1. Marinate the chicken breast with balsamic vinegar and salt for 15 minutes or so.
  2. Cut the bell peppers into pieces big enough to grill easily. We will cut them into small once roasted.
  3. Preheat the grill to gas mark 4. Brush it with olive oil.
  4. Brush the chicken breast with olive oil and carefully place it on the grill.
  5. Sprinkle the bell peppers with some salt and place them on the hot grill too.
  6. Turn the chicken breast after around 4 minutes and roast the other side too till tender, approximately 3 to 4 minutes. Chicken breasts cook very quickly, so be careful not to overcook them as it will turn too hard to eat.
  7. Insert the tip of a pointed knife into the thickest part of the chicken. If there are no traces of pink, your chicken breast is done. Take it out and keep it to rest for 10 minutes. Resting is important as it will make the chicken juicier.
  8. Check on the bell peppers. Take them out if they have also become soft.
  9. Now cut the bell peppers into bite size pieces, around 1 inch square.
  10. Cut the chicken breast into small pieces too.
  11. Deseed the avocado and slice them into long pieces.
  12. Prepare the dressing by mixing all ingredients thoroughly in a bowl.
  13. Take a salad bowl. Assemble grilled chicken, roasted peppers and avocado. Pour the dressing on top and give a good mix. Adjust seasoning by adding salt and pepper if required. Serve warm immediately.
