1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 tsp Pepper

1 Apple, cored and sliced

3 cups Mixed Greens

Preheat grill to high.

Drizzle olive oil and sprinkle the lemon pepper seasoning evenly over chicken breast. Place on grill for 4 minutes then turn and grill for another 4 minutes. Place on the top rack and continue to grill for another 5-8 minutes or until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees. 

While chicken is cooking mix together the vinaigrette by adding the zest of one lemon along with the juice in a large bowl. Then whisk in the extra virgin olive oil and season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Allow the chicken to rest for 5 minutes then slice into pieces. In a large salad bowl add the greens, top with chicken, apple slices, cranberries and drizzle the lemon vinaigrette over top of the entire salad, serve and enjoy!
