    1. Rinse the chicken breast strips in cool water and pat dry. Add to a resealable plastic bag. Pour the Italian dressing over and seal the bag. Let marinate for at least 30 minutes.
    2. Divide the lettuce, tomatoes and grated carrots evenly among four plates.
    3. Cook the chicken on your grill until fully cooked, flipping once.
    3. Top each of the salads with cooked chicken. Drizzle with dressing of choice and serve.
