Chicken Salad With Greens and Balsamic Dressing

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by flower7

I had a chicken breast to use and came up with this to help clean out the fridge. This is a good-size lunch or dinner salad. Everything is to taste so feel free to make any adjustments/additions or subtractions you like. If you don't have Mrs. Dash or bacon salt, season the chicken with your favorite spices (those were just what I had and the combo was good!) I used Balsamic / Red Wine Dressing for the dressing but please use your favorite!

Nice salad on a warm summer day. I used 2 breasts, sliced them into strips, seasoned from there and then pan fried, for more of a flavour boost. I used the suggested dressing from the forward note, along with regular romaine and diced tomatoes. Made for Everyday Holiday Tag. :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in a small non-stick skillet over medium heat. Sprinkle Mrs. Dash and bacon salt over both sides of chicken breast.
  2. Add chicken to heated skillet and cook chicken until done through, about 10-15 minutes, turning to brown both sides. Remove and let cool until warm not hot then slice or shred into bite-size pieces.
  3. Add lettuce and remaining vegetables to a large salad bowl, top with cheese and chicken. Dress with vinaigrette and toss to coat everything with the dressing.
