Nothing says summer like a plate of delicious grilled meat paired with a cool, crisp salad loaded with fresh seasonal produce. This recipe combines the best of both! Succulent grilled chicken combines with aromatic basil, plump blackberries and peppery arugula for a healthy salad that’s bursting with flavor ― and good for your teeth.
Basil has phytochemicals that help protect against oral cancer.
Blackberries are a great source of vitamin K, which is important for strong teeth and bones.
Arugula is full of potassium, which helps lower the risk of tooth decay.
This recipe calls for boneless, skinless chicken, and the combination of high heat and lean meat can make grilling it a bit tricky. But with the right preparation and technique, the results can be fabulous.
Chicken thighs are a better choice for grilling than chicken breasts.
If you’d prefer to use chicken breast, a little bit of prep work can go a long way toward keeping your chicken moist and flavorful.
