Grilled Chicken Salad

This recipe is incredibly deceiving. At first glance it looks basically like a salad. How can you possibly have salad for dinner? Well, check out the list of ingredients and you'll see that it really is much more than that- by the time this salad is finished in our house, I am fuller than after eating a shawarma. Trust me, that says alot. 
Grilled Chicken Salad

1 chicken breast, whole, and flattened
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 can chick peas (15 ounces)
1 can baby corn ( 15 ounces)
1/2 red pepper, diced
1 plum tomato diced, or 1/2 pint cherry tomatoes
1 cucumber diced
15-20 sugar snap peas ( I didn't have any, but they are really good if you can get some)
Lettuce of your choice

3 cloves garlic, crushed, or 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 1/2 tablespoon soy sauce
1/4 cup vinegar
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup sugar

Drizzle chicken breast with soy sauce. Broil at 500° for 4-5 minutes on each side. Let cool, and slice into chunks. Toss salad, dressing and chicken in a (very) large salad bowl. Serve with a fresh roll, or whole wheat bread. (Hey if you're going healthy, you might as well go all the way!) Enjoy!
