Grilled Chicken Arugula Salad

chicken arugula salad

This grilled chicken arugula salad is full of amazing, fresh flavor! And it’s easy to make, delicious and healthy! The green and red grapes add a nice sweetness to this chicken salad combined with the honey balsamic vinaigrette. And I added some chopped walnuts for a little crunch.

I love the fact that this grilled chicken arugula salad takes literally about 10 – 15 minutes to make and it’s perfect for lunch, or dinner on a busy weeknight. The ingredients are simple, and no prep work is required (except for the grilled chicken). Sometimes on weekends, I would grill a batch of chicken breasts seasoned with salt and pepper and store them in a ziplock bag in the refrigerator. I then use them during the week for quick recipes like this one. So convenient, and it makes eating healthy so much easier and stress-free.

Hope you enjoy this grilled chicken arugula salad! Let me know what you think if you try it. 🙂
