Mango Chicken Salad with Herb Marinade

Serves 4
Ingredients
For the herb marinade:
Juice from 1 lemon
1 tsp olive oil
1 tsp salt
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp crushed rosemary
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp sweet paprika
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp celery seeds
1/4 tsp dried parsley
1/8 tsp ground cumin
For the salad:
1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 bunch asparagus, ends trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
8 cups organic arugula
2 small mangoes, peeled and sliced
6 ounces crumbled goat cheese
Preparation
In a small bowl, combine all of the herb marinade ingredients
together. Place the asparagus into a large, resealable bag, then add 1
Tbsp of marinade. Place the chicken breasts in a separate bag, then
add the rest of the marinade. Fully coat the asparagus and chicken in
the marinade, then refrigerate for 1 hour.
Heat a grill pan, then add the chicken breasts and cook for 4 minutes
on each side or until the chicken is cooked through.
While the chicken cooks, sauté the asparagus in a medium pan, stirring
often. Remove both pans from the heat when done. Allow the chicken to
cool, then slice it into even strips.
In a large bowl, combine the arugula, mango slices and goat cheese.
Add the asparagus and chicken, then toss.
