summer salad nights: dijon mustard baked chicken breast salad with roasted potatoes and peppers

i made this salad by chance tonight (thankfully, because it ended up being so good)-having no idea what to make for dinner, i started at the freezer this morning where i found four organic chicken breasts. the chicken was defrosted as i began building my salad starting from the top refrigerator drawer where i found several bell peppers (including a slightly shriveled up yellow one). working my way down i found lettuce, organic green onions, ripe avocados, and a few yellow potatoes. since the chicken takes a while to cook, i started on the marinade right away:

dijon mustard marinade

for the marinade:

  • 1-2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1-2 tbs dijon mustard
  • 1-2 tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • freshly squeezed juice of one lemon
  • sea salt & cracked pepper to taste
