Need Suggestions for Chicken and Romaine

My wife wants to eat something healthy tonight. She went to the store and bought some chicken breasts and romaine lettuce. Give me your best suggestions as to what I can make with these main ingredients. We are looking for something quick and healthy

Thanks!

Grill the chicken, either marinated, or if you don't have the time sprinkle with your choice of herbs/spices... slice it up, take a flour tortilla or similar flat bread, pile up with the lettuce and if you like also some other vegs, like chopped tomatoes, red onion, shaved carrots etc, drizzle with ovoo and s&p, maybe some sliced black olives, then lay down the sliced chicken...that will make a hearty yet healthy roll up!!

Here's an idea I posted for a mango/blueberry chicken salad, for PA. Strawberries and or avacado will work too. You could sub the baby spinach leaves with (shredded) romaine and season the chicken with curry powder, for a different flavor.

ISO Mango 101
