Ingredients
  1. 8 cups chopped Romaine lettuce
  2. 1/2 pound fresh green beans, cut into bite sized pieces
  3. 1 tablespoon olive oil
  4. 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  5. 1 tablespoon fresh chopped herbs, such as thyme, basil, and rosemary
  6. 2 4-ounce chicken breasts
  7. 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  8. 1 large tomato, cut into wedges
  9. 2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese
  10. Salt and pepper, to taste
Instructions
  1. Divide the lettuce between two plates. Preheat a gas or charcoal grill to medium high heat and season the chicken with salt and pepper.
  2. Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Add the green beans to the pot and cook for 2 minutes. Drain and run under cold water. Toss the green beans with the olive oil, lemon juice and herbs. Divide these in half and top the lettuce with them.
  3. Spray your grill with cooking spray and grill your chicken breasts until cooked through. Transfer to a cutting board and allow to rest.
  4. While the chicken is resting, bring the balsamic vinegar to a a boil in a small saucepan. Cook until reduced by half; it will be thick and syrup-like.
  5. Slice the chicken and add it to the salad. Drizzle with the balsamic glaze, top with the Parmesan and serve with the tomato wedges.
