Mesquite Chicken Salad

Peter's Mesquite Chicken Salad pairs perfectly with Peter Vella Delicious White.


3 to 4 Foster Farms Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
1/3 cup Mesquite Barbecue Sauce
2 Tbs White Wine Vinegar
1 Tbs Lemon Juice
1 Tbs Dijon Mustard
1/4 tsp Ground Black Pepper
1 small Garlic Clove, finely chopped
4 Tbs Olive Oil
6 cups Mixed Salad Greens
1 Pear, cored and thinly sliced


Rinse chicken and pat dry. Brush chicken breasts with mesquite sauce. Over hot coals or in broiler of oven, grill chicken about 4 to 5 minutes on each side or until chicken is no longer pink when cut into. Let cool. Slice chicken into thin strips.

In small covered container mix vinegar, mustard, pepper, and oil; shake well. To serve, place salad greens on plates and top with chicken and pear. Sprinkle with vinaigrette.

This chicken recipe pairs perfectly with our Delicious White, a light-bodied wine that exhibits pleasing notes of apricot and hints of tropical fruits and then finishes crisply.
