French Dressing: In jar with lid, shake together oil, vinegar, lemon juice, sugar, herbes de Provence, paprika, salt and pepper. Pour 3 tbsp (50 mL) into bowl; add chicken and turn to coat. Let stand to marinate for 10 minutes.

Place chicken on greased grill over medium-high heat; close cover and grill, turning once, until no longer pink inside, about 12 minutes. Thinly slice.

Meanwhile, in saucepan of boiling salted water, cover and blanch green beans until tender-crisp, about 2 minutes. Drain and chill in cold water; drain well.

In large bowl, toss together green beans, tomato wedges, lettuce, olives and remaining dressing; divide salad among plates. Arrange chicken alongside.
