Fruit-Marinated Chicken Salad with Nuts and Berries

Mixed salad/greens 2 chicken breasts 1/4 cup craisins
Lemon garlic powder

(or 1/2 lemon + powder)

3 tbsp fruit-flavored vinegar 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
Dash of olive oil (fruit flavored if possible) 1/4 cup chopped nuts  

Serves 2-3 for lunch or dinner.

As chicken finishes defrosting, mix vinegars in marinating dish. Slice breasts into bite-sized chunks and add to dish. Add 5 or 6 shakes of garlic powder (and squeeze in lemon if necessary) to coat most of the chicken. Ensure chunks are mostly covered by marinade. Marinate for at least 30 minutes to an hour.

After chicken has marinated, add olive oil to pan and begin heating, coating the pan. Once heated, add chicken chunks and cook on medium to high heat. After about 3-4 minutes, drain pan of fat and juices, but return chicken to heat after draining. After 1-2 more minutes, add nuts and craisins. Heat 1-2 more minutes, mixing thoroughly. Drain pan again if necessary. Add salad/greens to serving bowl, and mix in pan mixture. Serve immediately.
