  4. Toss chicken, dry mustard, garlic powder, cinnamon, coriander, ginger, pepper and salt in a large bowl until the chicken is well coated. Place on the prepared pan in a single layer.
  5. Broil the chicken until cooked through, about 5 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, whisk peanut butter, soy sauce, sugar and hot sauce into the reserved grapefruit juice until smooth. Add the cooked chicken and lettuce; toss to combine. Serve the salad topped with radishes and the reserved grapefruit segments.

Salad seemed like it was confused I really liked the chicken and the grapefruit but I didn't think the peanut butter was right for this dressing Pros: I really liked the flavour of the chicken Cons: didn't really think the peanut butter was what the dressing needed, it didn't seem to fit the salad
