GARLIC CHICKEN SALAD

INGREDIENTS
2 large chicken breasts, split
1 tablespoon butter

salt and black pepper
1/2 teaspoon EACH: dried basil, dried oregano
1 tablespoon capers
1/4 to 1/3 cup white wine
4 garlic cloves, minced
8 to 12 cups chopped Romaine lettuce

Red or green bell pepper, chopped

large tomato, chopped
sliced peperoncino peppers
sweet canned corn
sliced cucumber or small zucchini
sliced mushrooms
sliced avocado
Cesar salad dressing, or similar

INSTRUCTIONS
Prepare the chicken first. Preheat a large pan over medium heat and melt the butter. Add the chicken breast into the hot pan and season lightly with salt and black pepper. Brown the chicken on both sides, about 5 minutes.

Add the remaining marinade ingredients: garlic, capers, white wine, basil and oregano. Stir the mixture to coat the chicken nicely. Continue cooking the chicken over medium-low heat until cook thoroughly. Smaller, thinner pieces will take about 8 minutes. Larger pieces may take up to 15 minutes. Internal temperature of the meat needs to reach 160F.

Meanwhile, prepare the salad. Toss your favorite salad toppings together with Romaine lettuce and Cesar salad dressing. You can also use a zesty Italian dressing or champagne dressing.
To serve, slice the hot chicken into thin strips and place directly on top of salad.
