4 servings (serving size: 1 breast half, 1 cup greens, and about 2 tablespoons sauce)

A tangy sauce enlivens simple grilled chicken breasts; a hint of sugar balances the flavors.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Sprinkle chicken evenly with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Coat pan with cooking spray. Place chicken in pan; cook 6 minutes on each side or until done.

Step 2

Combine remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, remaining 1/8 teaspoon pepper, shallots, and next 6 ingredients (through sugar) in a bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Serve chicken over greens with sauce.

The sauce makes the dish. Very flavorful. I grilled the chicken (thighs) on the grill. It will be delightful light meal for summer. I would easily serve to guests.

This was absolutely simple and my hubby & I loved it. It was filling, even though it didn't have a ton of calories. I did double the sauce, as the greens needed some kind of dressing. I really didnt need to, though, as I have plenty left over for the other half that we didn't eat. It was pretty spicy, so if you like less spice use a little less mustard. A definite make-again on a night when I don't have much time and want something yummy!

Great dressing! Could omit some of the water to make it creamier, too. Served with sweet potatoes and my Dad couldn't get enough!

This was simple and delicious! I did need to finish 2 of the thicker chicken breasts in the oven and be careful if you're going to use Wegmans brand Dijon mustard...VERY spicy! I chopped the chicken breast before topping the greens and served it as a salad. I will be making this again.

This was a wonderful recipe. I put some of the dressing on the chicken while grilling. It was easy to make and the taste of tarragon added so much to it. Certainly great for company.

I love this recipe. I cooked the chicken in my cast iron skillet and also, like another reviewer, served it with asparagus. I added a little EVOO to the skillet while the chicken was "resting" and then sauteed fresh asparagus spears with a little salt and pepper for about 4-5 minutes. Yummo!

Grilled it outside. Perfect summer salad, used mixed spicy greens from the farmers market!
