berry chicken salad

it's practically summer, & you know what that means? SALAD time!!!! that's about all what i care to eat on a hot, sultry summer day...salads are not only quick & easy to whip up, but wicked healthy for you! i found this recipe by a woman named linda larsen, which i found on the net, & i love the combo of berries & chicken...i've had something similar to this at a fancy, schmancy restaurant! & here it is, right from the net! anyway, this is my contribution to this week's five ingredients friday, created by overwhelmed with joy! "Cooking chicken in salad dressing is an unusual but wonderful way to add flavor and cut down on fat." ~linda larsen ingredients: 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips 1 cup catalina or french salad dressing 10 oz. pkg. mixed salad greens 2 cups sliced strawberries, or blueberries, or raspberries preparation: in a large skillet, simmer chicken in 1/4 cup of the salad dressing over medium heat until chicken no longer pink and is thoroughly cooked. toss greens, strawberries and chicken in large bowl with remaining dressing and serve. 6 servings (prep time: 10 min; cook time: 10 min= 20 min total kitchen time *smile*) 'appy cooking (as my all-time fave chef, jacques pepin would say)!

    Uhm, yummy! I'm not a big chicken fan. I wonder if I could substitue beef instead!

    I'm always looking for good salad recipes, so thanks for this one!
