Chicken: In non-metallic dish just large enough to hold chicken in a single layer, combine oil, mustard, vinegar, garlic, Italian seasoning, and cayenne. Add chicken, turning to coat on both sides. Marinate, covered, 30 minutes at room temperature, or refrigerate for up to 4 hours, Remove chicken from marinade. Place on greased barbecue grill. Cook over medium-high heat 8 to 10 minutes, turning every 4 minutes until juices run clear when chicken is pierced with a skewer. Transfer to cutting board. Cover with foil. Salad: In large bowl, toss 8 cups (2 L) mixed salad greens with just enough dressing to coat leaves lightly. Divide among 4 plates. Cut chicken crosswise into slices; arrange on top of greens.
