Citrus Chicken Salad


1/2 cup Ruk's Preserves Orange Marmalade            1 (11 oz) can Mandarin Oranges

1 cup Walnuts, candied                                             4 Tbsp steak seasoning                               

1 cup Purple Onions, julienned                                 12 cups Fresh Spinach

1 lb. Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast Halves       Goat Cheese (optional)                                     



Preheat grill for medium-high heat.

Season chicken with steak seasoning. 

In a small sauce pan heat orange marmalade to thin slightly. Set aside about 1/2 cup for basting and 1/2 cup for dressing.

Lightly oil the grill grate. Grill chicken for 6 to 8 minutes on each side, basting frequently with the reserved portion of the dressing, or until juices run clear. Cool, and cut into strips. Discard basting sauce.

Heap approximately 2 cups of spinach per plate. Arrange walnuts, mandarin oranges, purple onions, and goat cheese over spinach. Top the salad with grilled chicken strips, and drizzle with remaining dressing to serve.
