Orange and Mixed Green Salad with Chicken

This recipe is a great use for leftover grilled chicken.  Slice it thin along the grain.  Very light, very healthy weeknight meal that takes very little time.  Weight Watchers Points Plus on this meal is 6 PP+.
Recipe Notes
The original recipe called for watercress, but I like an herb mix salad blend with a little arugula for this meal.
