Method

 

For the chicken:

Rinse the chicken breasts under cold running water and then blot dry with paper towels.

If you have a chicken breast that is really thick on one end, pound it down with a mallet or pot until you get a more uniform thickness for the whole breast. This will allow the chicken to cook more evenly. Rub the chicken breasts with a little olive oil.

Season your chicken with whatever seasoning you like. This could be as easy a little salt and some fresh ground pepper.

Place the breast on the hottest part of the grill and don’t touch them for about 2 – 3 minutes.
Using tongs, lift each breast, rotate 45 degrees and then place them back on the grill.

After 2 to 4 minutes, lift the chicken breasts with tongs and flip them over. Continue to flip every 2-4 minutes until is cooked.

For the dressing:

Simply whisk the pomegranate Essence with the oil and add salt and pepper to taste.

For the salad:

Just before serving, toss the salad ingredients with the chicken and just enough dressing to coat nicely. Serve swiftly before the lettuce begins to wilt.
