- Chicken breast - BBQ sauce - Bacon - Spinach - Tomato

Place chicken breast and BBQ sauce into a reusable container with lid. Cover and allow to marinate in the fridge for a minimum 30 minutes, up to over night.

Heat your grill to medium-high, leaving space for direct heat and indirect heat.

Over indirect heat cook chicken to an internal temperature of 165 degrees, starting with 5 minutes on each side adjusting according to your meat thermometer.

Place the bacon slices into an oven safe skillet – preferably cast iron and place on the grill in direct heat. Flip bacon every 2 – 3 minutes to prevent burning. Remove from heat and drain once it's done according to your crispy preference. 

While the chicken cooks, wash and chop your vegetables into bite sized pieces, placing them into a large mixing bowl along with the feta, olive oil and golden balsamic vinegar.
