I made this for a quick light dinner and it was delicious! You can add any veggies to this salad. I included cucumbers and black olives.

Yum yum! Great way to prepare the chicken. I used "corn flake" crumbs, thought it went well with the hot sauce. I went ape on the vegetables and toppings here-- carrots, celery, cukes, red pepper, tomatoes, cheese, hard boiled eggs. I used ranch dressing and added a little hot sauce to that as well. Our salads were HUGE, DH couldn't even finish his! Thanks for the idea and recipe!
