  • Portion size 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 12 slices bacon
  • 24 cherry tomatoes
  • pinch each salt and pepper
  • 6 cups torn romaine lettuce
  • 1 1/2 cup croutons
Creamy Herbed Dressing:
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons light mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 4 teaspoons grainy mustard
  • 4 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 2/3 cups vegetable oil

Method

Creamy Herbed Dressing: In small bowl, whisk together parsley, mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, basil, salt and pepper; whisk in oil.

Cut chicken into thirty-six 1-inch (2.5 cm) cubes; place in bowl. Add half of the dressing; toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate chicken for up to 24 hours. Or freeze in freezer bags for up to 2 weeks; thaw in refrigerator. Cover and refrigerate remaining dressing for up to 4 days.)

Cut onion into twenty-four 1-1/2-inch (4 cm) pieces. Cut each bacon strip crosswise into thirds. Wrap 1 bacon piece around each chicken cube. Onto each of 12 metal or 10-inch (25 cm) soaked wooden skewers, thread 1 chicken cube, 1 piece onion and 1 tomato. Repeat once. Finish with third chicken cube. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Place skewers on greased grill over medium heat; close lid and grill, turning 3 times, until bacon is crisp and chicken is no longer pink inside, about 12 minutes.

Mound lettuce and croutons onto 6 plates; top each with 2 skewers. Drizzle with remaining dressing.
