Quick and Easy Summer Salad Idea

After working all day and being pregnant it leaves very little energy to cook dinner.  I decided I wanted to make a fresh salad with some grilled chicken.  I wanted the chicken to be very flavorful, so I mixed up a honey mustard marinade.  I mixed dijon mustard (old style whole grain for some texture) and a spoonful of honey.  I used my Deni meat tenderizer on the chicken and placed the tenders in my marinade for about 20 minutes.  I grilled the chicken until lightly golden brown and placed over a bed of fresh spinach leaves, tomatoes, and some croutons.  The chicken was so flavorful that I didn't even need a salad dressing.  Yum!  I know this is super simple, but not every dinner needs to take 2 hours to prepare.  Even my hubby loved it.  There were zero leftovers.  :) -->
