Directions: 1. Cook kamut 2. Make the dressing: Place all ingredients except Parmesan in small bowl. Whisk until blended; add Parmesan; whisk again. Set aside 3. Roast chicken breasts: Preheat oven to 375. Place chicken breast on baking sheet with sides. Brush both sides of chicken breasts with olive oil. Sprinkle Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes evenly over tops of chicken breasts. Place onion slices evenly over top of chicken. Bake until chicken reaches internal temp of 165 (about 25-35 min.) About 1/2 way through cooking add 2 T water to browned drippings on tray. 4. Make marinated veggies: Add all veggies to medium bowl. Add in Balsamic, olive oil, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper and toss to coat evenly. 5. Toss greens together in medium bowl.

Tips: *I don't soak the kamut overnight (mainly because I forget :/). I just cook for a bit past the full hour *This can be eaten with chicken and kamut warm or cold from fridge. Prepare as much of the recipe in advance as you'd like! *Use a high-quality mayo in the dressing for best flavor. Check for all-natural ingredients *Lucini pinot grigio vinegar can sometimes be hard for me to find. I order several bottles at a time directly from their website. You can also sub in a good champagne vinegar or other white wine vinegar.
