Blue Moon’s favorite ingredient, orange, is infused throughout this recipe, from the marinade and salad ingredients to the dressing. Along with the signature ingredient, their Valencia Grove Amber brew has notes of caramel to make it a rich and creamy ale that serves as the perfect marinade for the chicken breasts. 

Directions

Combine the beer, honey, mustard, onion, 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, and lemon juice in a bowl. Marinate chicken in this mixture for up to 24 hours. Remove the chicken from the marinade and place on a hot grill; turn the heat down to medium, or away from direct coals, and grill chicken for approximately 6-7 minutes on each side. Once it has cooked through, remove the chicken and place it on a cutting board to rest. Set aside a small bowl with bell peppers and avocado. Cut the romaine lettuce in 1/2 lengthwise. Lightly brush both sides with olive oil. Place face down onto the hot grill for 30-60 seconds. Turn once to sear back and then remove. Chop the lettuce into large pieces and place in a serving bowl. Slice the chicken to desired size and add to the serving bowl with the diced bell peppers and diced avocado. Garnish with the orange slices, and coat with dressing (method below). Dressing: Combine the rest of the mayonnaise, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, pepper, the orange juice, and a bit of zest. Thin with olive oil as needed.
