Here's a lighter version of the classic steak dish. Save time by marinating the chicken in the morning so pulling it together at night is a cinch.

Preparation:

Step 1

In a food processor, combine parsley, shallot, garlic, vinegar, olive oil, and 1/4 teaspoon each of the salt and pepper. Pulse until combined; set aside. Place chicken in a large re-sealable bag with 5 tablespoons of the parsley mixture and turn to coat. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Step 2

Heat a gas grill to medium-high heat or prepare a charcoal grill with medium-hot coals. Remove chicken from marinade and discard bag. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper over chicken. Grill about 5 minutes per side or until internal temperature registers 160°on an instant read thermometer. Allow chicken to rest for 5 minutes.

Step 3

Meanwhile, stir together remaining 1/4 cup parsley mixture and yogurt. Place greens and carrots in a large serving bowl and toss to mix. Cut chicken diagonally into thin slices and add to serving bowl. Drizzle prepared dressing over top and gently toss to coat. Serve immediately.
