How to Cook Grilled Chicken and Spinach Salad

  1. First slice the bacon. Add it in a heated skillet and fry it for about 1-2 minutes, until the fat melts and it becomes golden and crispy.

  3. Make the marinade: use a bowl and add salt, pepper, 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil, 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar, juice from half of the lemon, parsley and rosemary. Use this marinade to flavor the chicken breast.
  4. Place the meat over a heated grill and cook it for about 7-8 minutes per side. Thinly slice it when ready.
  5. Season the spinach with salt and pepper, and pour the remaining vegetable oil, lemon juice, and balsamic vinegar. Toss well.
  6. Top the salad with the chicken breast, bacon and hard-boiled egg.
  7. You can serve it either cold or warm!
