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!
- 2.46 ml olive oil
- 1 boneless skinless chicken breast
- 3.69-4.92 ml Mrs. Dash garlic and herb seasoning, to taste
- 2.46-3.69 ml J&D peppered bacon salt, to taste
- 946.36 ml baby romaine lettuce, red & green, cleaned & torn into pieces
- 59.14 ml shredded carrot
- 2-3 cremini mushrooms, cleaned & sliced
- 10 grape tomatoes, cleaned & cut in half
- 3-4 pickled onions or 3-4 red onions, slices
- 56.69 g monterey jack pepper cheese, shredded
- 118.29 ml balsamic vinaigrette, homemade best
- Heat oil in a small non-stick skillet over medium heat. Sprinkle Mrs. Dash and bacon salt over both sides of chicken breast.
- 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.
- 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.
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. :)
