INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat oven to 375°F. Add balsamic, basil, oregano, salt, garlic, maple and olive oil to a jar, screw on the lid and shake it up to combine. Place the chicken breast in a bowl or dish and pour about 1/2 of the dressing on the chicken and set the rest aside far away from the raw chicken. Make sure the chicken is fully coated in the marinade and let it sit for 15-30 minutes. Place on a baking sheet with the bell pepper (skin side up) and roast for 30-35 minutes. Rest for 10-15 minutes. Then, slice the chicken and peppers up.

Assemble your salad, place the greens in a large bowl or plate, top with chicken, peppers, capers, prosciutto and provolone, finish with the remaining dressing.

ENJOY!
