Bonus: Cook Once, Eat Twice. This makes extra chicken, so you've got a start on tomorrow's pasta toss. If you're not planning on the Day-Two menu, cook only four breasts.

  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1 romaine lettuce
  • 1 carrot shredded
  • 1/2 sweet red pepper thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup light mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup crouton

Method

Combine oil, oregano, pepper and salt ; brush over chicken. Place on greased grill over medium heat; close lid and cook, turning once, for 10 minutes or until no longer pink inside.

Transfer to cutting board; tent with foil and let stand for 5 minutes. Cover and refrigerate 2 of the breasts for Creamy Cheddar Pasta Toss. Slice remaining chicken across the grain into thin strips.

Meanwhile, tear lettuce into bite-size pieces; place in large bowl. Add carrot, red pepper and chicken; toss lightly.

Whisk together mayonnaise, milk, cheese, lemon juice, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper; pour over salad and toss to coat. Sprinkle with croutons.
