This salad has double the honey mustard flavor — it uses a simple, 3-ingredient mix of honey, mustard, and olive oil to make a tasty salad dressing that doubles as a marinade for the chicken.


  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 6 - 8 cups romaine lettuce
  • 2 slices cooked bacon, crumbled
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cup corn (canned or fresh)
  • ½ cup sliced red onion

Dressing & Marinade:

  • ⅔ cup whole grain dijon
  • ⅔ cup olive oil
  • 6 tablespoons honey
  • Salt & pepper, to taste


  1. Make the dressing/marinade: in a small bowl, mix together the dijon, olive oil, honey, salt & pepper. Set aside half of the mixture to use as dressing.
  2. Marinate the chicken: use the remaining half to marinate the chicken breasts in an airtight container in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, or longer (up to 8 hours) if possible.
  3. Cook the chicken: heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the chicken and cook, covered, 5 - 6 minutes on each side. The chicken should be cooked through and no longer pink in the middle.
  4. Mix: add all of the salad ingredients to a large bowl. Drizzle the dressing on top and toss to mix. Enjoy!
