Ingredients

2013 04 10 20 52 56 Otgc Poultry 18 Full 346X318
  • DRESSING:
  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons minced shallot
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary leaves
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ⅓ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, each about 6 ounces
  • 1 medium red onion, cut crosswise into ⅓-inch slices
  • 1 romaine lettuce heart, cut crosswise into ½-inch strips
  • 2 small red apples, cut into ¼-inch slices
  • 1 cup green grapes
  • ½ cup cashews
  • ½ cup diced cheddar cheese

Instructions

    In the kitchen:

  • 01 In a small bowl whisk the dressing ingredients, except the oil. Slowly whisk in the oil to make a smooth dressing.
  • 02 Place the chicken breasts in a large bowl and add ¼ cup of the dressing; turn to coat. Allow the chicken to marinate at room temperature for 15 to 30 minutes before grilling. Spoon 2 tablespoons of the dressing over the onion slices and gently turn to coat evenly.
  • At the barbecue:

  • 01 Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium heat (175° to 230°C).
  • 02 Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the chicken, smooth (skin) side down first, over direct medium heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, until the meat is firm to the touch and opaque all the way to the centre, 8 to 12 minutes, turning once or twice. Grill the onion slices with the chicken over direct medium heat until charred in spots and tender, about 8 minutes, turning once. Remove the chicken and the onions from the grill and let the chicken rest for 3 to 5 minutes.
  • 03 Combine the remaining ingredients in a large serving bowl. Cut the chicken into thin strips and roughly chop the onions. Add the chicken and onions to the bowl. Add enough of the remaining dressing to coat the ingredients lightly (you may not need all of it). Mix well. Serve at room temperature.
