Preheat an outdoor barbecue for high heat.
Lightly oil the barbecue grate. Barbecue chicken 8 minutes on each side or until juices run clear. Remove from heat, cool and slice.
Meanwhile, place pecans in a dry frying pan over medium high heat. Toast pecans until fragrant, stirring frequently, about 8 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
In a blender, combine the red wine vinegar, sugar, oil, onion, mustard, salt and pepper. Process until smooth.
Arrange lettuce on serving plates. Top with chicken slices, strawberries and pecans. Drizzle with the dressing to serve.
If you don't want to bother with the barbecue, simply char-grill the chicken on a griddle pan.
