Grilled chicken with citrus beet & wheat berry salad

Servings: 4

  1. Add wheat berries and water to a pot. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cover until tender (about 30 minutes).
  2. Using a mandolin or very sharp knife, slice beet into thin slices and add to a large bowl.
  3. Add greens to a small skillet with 2 tbsp water over medium-high heat. Soften greens by cooking them for 2 minutes, stirring continuously. Remove from heat and add to beets and cooked wheat berries.
  4. Combine orange juice, lemon juice, mint, parsley and olive oil. Stir dressing and add to greens. Set aside.
  5. Season chicken with salt and pepper and grill (using an outdoor grill or a grill pan) until cooked through.
  6.  Top chicken with salad and garnish with orange and lemon zest.

*If you don’t have a grill the chicken can be baked in the oven at 350ºF for 20-25 minutes.
