Strawberry Balsamic Chicken Salad

Strawberry Balsamic Chicken Salad

1 large chicken breast

5 strips good quality smoked bacon (nitrate free)

2 c. baby spinach
2 c. arugula
1 pint strawberries (sliced)
1/2 c. toasted almonds (or any toasted nut you like) coarsely chopped
Vinaigrette
1/4 c. good quality extra virgin olive oil
1/4 c. balsamic vinegar
1/4 c. Just Jan’s Organic Strawberry Spread
salt and freshly ground black pepper
Season the chicken breast with salt and pepper.  Saute chicken in olive oil until cooked through.  Cut into strips (bite size pieces)
Cook the bacon until crisp-tender.  (the oven method works well)
Toast nuts in the oven
Whisk together vinaigrette ingredients until well combined.  Add a bit of the bacon drippings to give some extra flavor (optional) If vinaigrette seems thick, add a touch of water to thin it out.
