BALSAMIC ORANGE GRILLED CHICKEN

  • 4 small chicken breast fillets, skim removed (about 4 oz each)
  • 1 orange, juiced
  • 1/3 cup Balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 head of butter lettuce, washed and dried
  • 2 Lebanese cucumbers, sliced lengthways (I think regular cucumbers will work
  • fine)
  • 1 punnet cherry tomatoes, halved (I think that's a small grocery store box of
  • cherry or grape tomatoes)
  • 1 medium avocado, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup WW Italian dressing (use any light Italian dressing)
Combine chicken, orange juice, vinegar and garlic in a bowl. Marinate the chicken for 15 minutes or as time permits. Heat a grill or barbecue. Cook the chicken, brushing often with the Balsamic marinade.

In a salad bowl, combine the lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes and avocado slices. Drizzle with the salad dressing. Slice the cooked chicken and serve over or with the salad.

4 servings, 5 POINTS each

**NOTE TO MY FRIENDS**
Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
