Round out this early spring dish with a hearty multigrain baguette. Depending on the season, you may also want to add other fruits to the salad, such as peach slices or fresh raspberries.
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1/3 cup pomegranate juice
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons canola oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 (5-ounce) package gourmet salad greens
1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
3/4 cup orange sections (about 2 medium oranges)
1/3 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup (1 ounce) crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
How to Make It
To prepare chicken, heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Sprinkle chili powder and salt over chicken. Add chicken to pan; cook 5 minutes on each side or until done. Remove chicken from skillet; let stand 3 minutes. Cut chicken across grain into thin slices; set aside.
To prepare dressing, combine juice and next 5 ingredients (through crushed red pepper) in a small bowl; stir well with whisk.

this spaghetti and cheese is divine................. it was so easy to make! the first time i burnt the cherry dressing AND I WORE MY LUCKY CHERRY DRESSING MAKERS DRESS!!! other than that this chicken corn soup is delicious good job
I make a similar salad and also add an avocado to make it even more delicous. I have also used mango and blueberries. My family loves blue cheese or gorgonzola so it is always devoured. Looking forward to trying the salad dressing with the pomegrante juice.
Delicious and quite easy. I left out the dried cranberries and since they were in season, bought a whole pomegranate and added the seeds. If they are not in season, I will definitely use dried cranberries. If you are unfamiliar with how to "open and seed" a pomegranate, you may want to read how on a web site. Is it easy but messy, and the seeds are DELICIOUS!! Good for a ladies'' luncheon (if you are concerned that everyone will not like the Gorgonzola or Blue cheese, offer both Gorgonzola and crumbled goat cheese, and let your guests choose. I grilled the chicken on my indoor Jenn-Aire, but might conisder using rotisserie chicken if pressed for time.
Have not made this recipe, however I noticed that it call for a sprayed cooking oil in a nonstick pot. Canned spray oil will ruin the surface of a non-stick pot, so you might want to wipe it down with an oil instead. Happy Eating!
