Goddess Grilled Chicken & Rice Salad

Place chicken and ½ cup Drew’s Organic Tahini Goddess Dressing and Quick Marinade in a resealable bag and place in the refrigerator. Marinate chicken for 30 minutes. Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Clean and oil grill grates. Grill chicken until it reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F, as measured with a meat thermometer in the thickest part of the breast, flipping halfway through cooking time. Discard marinade. Remove chicken from grill and slice when slightly cooled.

Meanwhile, microwave frozen peas in a microwave safe container for 2 ½ -3 minutes, or until heated through.

Place cooked brown rice, peas, scallions, raisins and parsley in a large bowl. Pour remaining ½ cup Drew’s Organic Tahini Goddess Dressing and Quick Marinade over mixture. Toss to combine.

Top salad with grilled chicken and freshly ground pepper. Serve salad with lemon wedges.

*Toast pine nuts in a dry skillet over medium heat until fragrant and lightly browned. Do not leave unattended as pine nuts will burn easily.

Recipe note: this salad is also delicious the next day either cold or pan-fried in a skillet.
