  • Sherry Vinaigrette, divided
  • 2 peaches, halved and pitted
  • 4 (4-ounce) chicken breast cutlets
  • Cooking spray
  • 4 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 1⁄3 cup pine nuts, toasted
  • 1 (3-ounce) package goat cheese, crumbled
How to Make It
  1. Prepare grill.
  2. Prepare Sherry Vinaigrette; set aside ¼ cup vinaigrette.
