1 package
2 tablespoons prepared pesto
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
4 Roma tomatoes, sliced
4 cups arugula
1/4 cups red wine vinaigrette
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, shaved


  1. Combine pesto, lemon juice and tenders in a bowl and toss to coat. Grill tenders for 5-6 minutes, turning several times, until cooked through.
  2. Combine arugula with 2 tablespoons vinaigrette and toss well to coat. Divide greens among 4 plates. Top each with 1 sliced tomato and 3 chicken tenders. Drizzle with remaining dressing and serve with shaved Parmesan if desired.

Recipe Tip:

Make your own pesto by combining basil, a clove of garlic, a couple tablespoons of Parmesan and a drizzle of olive oil in the blender. This will contain less oil and fat than prepared pesto.
