This simple spicy chicken salad is a great way of enjoying chicken especially when you don’t want to have rice as the side dish. We will pan sear the chicken then present with a touch of grapes as a garnish. The sweet and sour combination is always remarkable. Biting through a slice of the spicy chicken with a grape and the salad is one of the best feelings your taste buds could ever experience.
