Chicken with Grapes and Mustard Vinaigrette is a light and healthy low carb lunch or dinner. Fresh chunks of white chicken meat are coated in a light and tangy vinaigrette. Halved red grapes, crunchy walnuts, and sliced green onions round out the flavors.
I always have a few holiday pounds to shed this time of year and the easiest and quickest way for me to shed them is to cut out sugar, dairy, and carbs for a few weeks. Which means I eat a lot of salads. Since I easily get tired of your typical green salad, it’s important to have a little variety.
This Chicken with Grapes and Mustard Vinaigrette is a salad with unexpected flavor combinations. There’s no lettuce but you could certainly serve it on a bed of lettuce.
Diced chicken gets tossed with green onions, red grapes, and walnuts and just a drizzle of a simple mustard vinaigrette. I love the sweetness of the red grapes with the tangy vinaigrette. This is a filling, healthy meal that will help you get out of a salad rut!
