Italian White Bean Parmesan Chicken Salad








     Once you bite into my Italian White Bean Parmesan Chicken Salad you will feel transported back to the cobblestone streets of Venice.  And while you are there, feel free to travel the bridges from the Old World to the New World bringing the flavors from the past to the present.  This modern twist adds several healthy components to be enjoyed guilt free, each of the six servings is only 328 calories, 25.5g carbs, and 26.7g protein.  Time to throw a themed dinner party!  Ciao ;)

Ingredients for 6~
1 pound boneless skinless Chicken Breast
2/3 cup BRIANNAS Italian Vinaigrette, divided into two equal portions
2 cups Baby Spinach Leaves
10oz Zucchini, spiralized, shredded or chopped ( I use a sprializer to make long noodles)
3oz shredded Carrots
15oz Garbanzo Beans, drained
15oz Cannellini Beans, drained
5oz Red Cherry Tomato, diced in half
5oz Golden Cherry Tomato, diced in half
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan
4 Green Onions, diced
1/4 cup Tomato Italiano Roasted Gourmet Pumpkin SuperSeedz
Dash Salt and Pepper to season, as desired

     Marinate Chicken in 1/3 cup BRIANNAS over night or for 8 hours, grill and dice into bite size pieces.  Meanwhile, in large salad bowl layer Baby Spinach Leaves, Zoodles, and Carrots.  Make a mixture of the 2 Beans and the diced grilled Chicken and add next layer to Salad.  Arrange halved Cherry Tomatoes around perimeter of bowl.  Then finish by topping Salad with Parmesan, Green Onion, Pumpkin Seeds and finish by drizzling with remaining 1/3 cup BRIANNAS Italian Vinaigrette. Season as desired.  Enjoy  ;)

Disclosure: I received free product from BRIANNAS and included them in this post because I genuinely love their products. I wasn’t required to write this post nor was I compensated for it. They just make the best salad dressing out there … simple as that!
