Alli's Fruit & Feta Salad with Grilled Chicken

We had this at our book club Christmas party and it was a smash!

8 cups assorted greens (I use mix of Romaine and Spring Mix)
1/2 cup feta, crumbled
1 or 2 (11oz) cans mandarin oranges
1/2 cup dried craisins, cherries or golden raisins or a combo of your favorite
1 small red onion, chopped
1/2 cup toasted pecans or almonds

Dressing:1/4 cup raspberry wine vinegar
1/2 cup vegtable oil
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup sugar
dash of tabasco sauce

1 Sam's Club (or Costco!) Frozen Chicken bag

2c 7up
1/2c soy sauce
1/2c olive oil
1tsp garlic powder
1tsp Horseradish (I didn't have and used horseradish mustard and it worked as well)

1- Open Sam's Club bag. Add all above ingredients. Put into fridge overnight.

2- Rotate in the morning and throughout the day. (If breasts are super thick, cut in the morning.)

3- Take out approx 1hr before grilling. Combine salad ingredients in large salad bowl. Stir Dressing ingredients till well combined in seperate bowl. Pour over (amount will be to your liking-add more lettuce if you think it is too saturated) salad just before serving. Toss and top with grilled chicken!
