Oven-Fried Chicken Salad with Grapes, Honey, Almonds, and Broccoli


Oven-Fried Chicken Salad with Grapes, Honey, Almonds, and Broccoli


  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 6 (4-oz.) chicken cutlets, 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick
  • 1 ½ cups seasoned breadcrumbs
  • ½ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 1 (5-oz.) package spring lettuce mix
  • 3 cups broccoli florets
  • ½ cup halved seedless red grapes
  • ½ cup halved seedless green grapes
  • ½ cup sliced almonds


  • Preheat oven to 425°. Beat eggs in a small bowl. Dip chicken in eggs, and dredge in breadcrumbs, pressing firmly to adhere. Place on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet. Bake 15 minutes or until chicken is brown and done.
  • Meanwhile, whisk together vinegar, honey, Dijon mustard, salt, pepper, and olive oil.
  • Combine lettuce, broccoli, red grapes, and green grapes, season with salt and pepper.
  • Toss the lettuce mixture with the vinaigrette in a large bowl, or you can serve the vinaigrette on the side.
  • Place the salad on a serving tray or in individual serving dishes and top with chicken and sliced almonds.

This makes a large salad with 4 to 6 servings. It will be a big hit when served with a great Sandy Road Vineyards wine!

What should I pair this with, you may ask? A nice Texas Albariño of course! - and we have it! Our award-winning Albariño is the perfect wine for this dish. Summer never tasted so good! Click on the photo to order some.
