Grilled Balsamic Marinated Chicken and Al Fresco Green Bean and Tomato Saute

This is an excellent quick and easy meal that is so simple to prepare with the use of salad dressings as the main ingredient. The salad dressings add tons of flavor to the meat and veggies. Newman's Own Lighten Up dressings make wonderful marinades for meats and are a great way to get your healthy fats in for the day. The chicken recipe below is marinated in a balsamic vinaigrette and a combination of spices I marinated the chicken overnight for maximum flavor. Then I grilled the chicken for about 8 minutes. The chicken came out very moist and had just the right amount of flavor from the balsamic dressing. Serve with the Al Fresco Green Bean and Tomato Saute for the perfect meal! Yum!
