Ingredients
  • 2 tsp. Caribbean jerk seasoning blend
  • 4 (5 to 6 oz.) boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, preferably free range or organically raised
  • 2 tsp. canola oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 slices Sargento® Sliced Medium Cheddar Cheese , cut diagonally in half
  • 8 cups mixed salad greens
  • 1 cup grape or cherry tomatoes, halved if large
  • 1/3 cup light or regular ranch salad dressing
Directions
  1. Sprinkle seasonings over both sides of chicken. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and garlic; cook 5 minutes per side or until chicken is cooked through. Arrange cheese over chicken; reduce heat to low. Cover; cook 1 minute to melt cheese.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine salad greens, tomatoes and dressing; toss well and transfer to 4 plates. Cut chicken crosswise into thick slices; arrange over salads.
