1 Tbsp Dijon mustard

2 Tbsp canola oil
4 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
Pinch cane sugar

5 skinless chicken breast halves, boned and defatted
¾ tsp sea salt
1 Tbsp paprika
½ Tbsp granulated garlic
2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
¾ tsp fresh lemon juice
1½ cups thickly sliced mushrooms
1¼ cups baby spinach
2 cups shredded romaine lettuce
1 pinch sea salt
1 pinch freshly ground black pepper
2 Tbsp chopped walnuts
½ cup diced red onion
¼ tsp dry thyme, crushed
4 tsp lime peel

  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Combine ingredients for dressing, mix well and refrigerate until needed.
