4 skinned and boned chicken breasts (about 1 1/4 lb.)
Vegetable cooking spray
1 fennel bulb, cut in half
2 heads Bibb lettuce, torn
1/2 English cucumber, thinly sliced
1/2 cantaloupe, peeled and sliced
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1 cup fresh blackberries
4 ounces Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
1/2 cup honey-roasted sliced almonds


1. Pour 1/2 cup Raspberry-Tarragon Dressing into a large zip-top plastic freezer bag. Cover and refrigerate remaining dressing.

2. Add chicken to 1/2 cup dressing in bag. Seal and chill 30 minutes to 2 hours. Coat cold cooking grate of grill with cooking spray, and place on grill. Preheat grill to 350° to 400° (medium-high) heat. Remove chicken from marinade, discarding marinade.
