Green Leaf Lettuce with Grilled Chicken, Black Olives, Red Bell Pepper and Balsamic Vinaigrette

This recipe serves: 
Ingredients
For the balsamic vinaigrette:
1 teaspoon finely chopped shallots
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon olive oil
salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper
For the grilled chicken:
1 skinless, boneless chicken breast
nonstick cooking spray
For the green salad:
2 cups green leaf lettuce, washed and torn into bite-sized pieces
2 tablespoons sliced, large black olives
1/4 large red bell pepper, stemmed, seeded and diced
Cooking Instructions
For the balsamic vinaigrette:
1. Place the shallots and vinegar in a small mixing bowl and whisk to combine. Continue whisking and slowly add the olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
(This can be made in advance and stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.)

For the grilled chicken:
1. Spray the grill grate with nonstick cooking spray and then preheat the grill to medium-high.

2. Season the chicken breast with salt and pepper.

3. Grill the chicken on both sides until it is cooked through, about 4 to 6 minutes per side depending on the thickness. Transfer the chicken breast to a cutting board and let cool.
(The chicken can be grilled in advance and stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.)

For the green salad:
1. Slice the chicken breast into strips and place them in a mixing bowl. Add the black olives, red bell pepper and half of the balsamic vinaigrette.

2. Place the lettuce in a separate salad bowl and toss it with the remaining vinaigrette. Arrange the chicken, black olive and red bell pepper mixture on top and serve.
