Ingredients

    1/3 cup tahini (sesame paste)
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1/8 tsp salt
    Dash fresh ground pepper
    2 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed
    2 tsp Dijon mustard
    2 tsp honey
    2/3 cup mashed fresh or frozen raspberries with juice
    2 Tbsp canola oil
    1 head romaine lettuce, cored and chopped into bite-size pieces

Tips

Healthy living tradition
Packaged salad dressings are full of chemicals, preservatives, and unnecessary ingredients. Take a tip from Mediterranean kitchens: serve salads with extra-virgin olive oil, lemon juice, lime juice, or vinegar. Using Dijon mustard and raspberries (as in this recipe) will give you a thicker consistency and additional flavor without adding a lot of calories or fat.


Directions

1. In a large bowl, combine tahini, lemon juice and garlic. Whisk together with a fork. Continue whisking, and stir in 1/4 cup water a little at a time to form a smooth dressing. Add salt and pepper Stir to combine.

2. Rinse chicken pieces and add to tahini sauce. Turn to coat. Marinate, covered, for 1 hour at room temperature or overnight in the refrigerator.

3. Preheat broiler, grill or grill pan. Evenly thread chicken pieces onto six skewers. Discard leftover marinade. Grill chicken, turning frequently, until golden brown on the outside and cooked through on the inside (about 20 minutes).

4. Make dressing by combing mustard, honey and mashed raspberries with juice in a small bowl. Whisk in canola oil to form a smooth glaze. Place in a small serving bowl. Line the bottom of a serving platter with lettuce. Lay chicken pieces on top and brush with glaze. Serve warm.
