Grilled Chicken, Onion, Plum, and Goat Cheese Salad

I had a craving for the Grilled Chicken, Onions, and Peaches with Avocado Tomato Salsa the other night.  I didn’t have any peaches on hand though and sadly my avocado’s weren’t ripe yet, so I did a variation and used some plums!

It wasn’t as delicious, but a close 2nd… 🙂blog Grilled Chicken Onions and Plum Salad with Goat Cheese Salad-4Ingredients (to serve 4)

  • 8 plums (I used ones that were almost ripe, but still a little on the firm side)
  • 4 boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 large sweet onion
  • 10 cherry tomatos (I used orange ones)
  • 4 Tablespoons of goat cheese
  • Handful of diced almonds
  • 4-6 Cups of salad greens.  Your choice, but I like to use a mix that has both spinach and arugula, because those wilt nicely.
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil (amount not measured, but will describe in instructions :))
  • Sea Salt and Pepper
  • Trader Joe’s Reduced Balsamic Glaze.


  • Light your grill and set it to a medium heat.
  • Cut your onion into 1/2 inch slices
  • Season the chicken breasts and onion with olive oil, sea salt and pepper.
  • Set both on the grill for 8-10 minutes (depending on the size of your chicken breasts)
  • Cut plums in half and lightly coat with olive oil and a little bit of sea salt.
  • At the 8-10 minute mark, flip both the chicken and onion and add the plums to the grill.
  • Cook everything for another 8-10 minutes until chicken cooked all the way through.blog Grilled Chicken Onions and Plum Salad with Goat Cheese Salad-2
  • During the cooking, cut tomatoes and break up the goat cheese over the salad greens in a big bowl.
  • Layer everything together.  Drizzle a little bit of olive oil and Trader Joe’s Glaze over each serving and ENJOY!!! 🙂blog Grilled Chicken Onions and Plum Salad with Goat Cheese Salad-8dit-elle-Lauren
