Day 139- Chicken Salad with Grilled Tomatoes


February 10, 2013 by chicagogrilling365

037I am super weird when it comes to tomatoes and anything made from tomatoes. On some things I can eat them raw, but only if it’s a really good tomato. On other things I can’t stand raw tomato on it.

031This varies from sandwich to sandwich and salad to salad. Then when it comes to pizza sauce, it must be light and sweet. If a pizza has a thick red sauce on it, out comes the napkin and I wipe off before eating it.

I had some chicken strips in the freezer that were marinaded then vacuum sealed. I wanted to make this salad using them but I also wanted to add another grilled item and I thought: tomatoes, perfect.

I love grilled and stewed tomatoes.

030032With the new electric scale I got Kurt for his birthday I was able to calculate exactly how many calories were in this dish. Back to that later.

I seasoned my tomato slices in oil, salt and pepper. I put the chicken strips on first since I knew they would take just a tad longer to cook. With the strips half done I added the tomatoes to the grill.

I got a slight sear on each side and took them off. My salad was made up of grilled chicken, grilled tomatoes, feta cheese, mixed greens, cucumbers and a Tuscan balsamic dressing.

033034I built my salad and chowed down and I mean chowed down! The total calories for this delicious, healthy and packed full of flavor salad was…only 355 calories! Amazing.

Thanks for reading, I’ll be back tomorrow!
