Whenever I go out to dinner, I almost always order a grilled chicken salad, not only because they’re healthy, but also because they’re delicious! Grilled chicken tastes so much better on salads than baked or fried chicken. To save money, I decided to buy a ton of salad ingredients and prepare salads to eat throughout the week instead of ordering salads to go at restaurants.
I bought about six boneless skinless chicken breast to go with the salads. I marinated them in balsamic dressing, 1/2 cup pineapple juice, sea salt, and red pepper flakes.
After letting the chicken marinate for a couple of hours, I grilled it and placed it in the refrigerator.
Ingredients for the salad: roma tomato, cold macaroni, avocado, whole wheat croutons, sweet banana peppers, and spring mix salad.
Cold macaroni seems like a weird salad addition, but it’s amazing with balsamic. Cold macaroni is my favorite.
After taking this photo, I threw all the ingredient in the bowl, diced the chicken, and mixed it all together. It was much prettier displayed like this though:)
