1/1 Photo of Peach Chicken Spring Salad

Catfish Charlie's Note:
Preparation time includes marinating time. Grilled chicken with peaches on salad greens and fried rice noodles; better than you'd think and easy to make! The main idea for this dish came from my wife who was in the mood for peaches. What can I say, it turned out to be a great idea! Now it's becoming a staple dish for us. Despite the oil called for in the recipe, it is actually a very healthful recipe because most of the oil is in the chicken marinade and does not actually end up in the food itself, which of course the nutrition calculator can not take into consideration. Makes a good main dish, a bit too much for a side salad.
