Inspired by the world-famous spicy wings, this one's much easier and lower in fat. Drizzle on blue cheese dressing to complete the dish. Enjoy!

Fantastic! I left out the cucumber but think that would be the perfect addition to this salad. I will definitely have one next time around. I also used a light ranch dressing since my husband and I aren't too fond of blue cheese. We both really enjoyed this salad...it's a good way to get my husband to eat a little healthier! Thanks so much for posting. Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders Tag.

I really enjoyed this. I left the hot sauce off some of the chicken because otherwise my 5 year old wouldn't eat. Overall this was a very nice and easy salad. Thanks for sharing!

Absolutely awesome! Easy; easy clean-up; great combination of 'wings' and salad but less fat. I use Cholula hot sauce and I used all three tablespoons because I like it hot, hot, hot! The dressing tamed it a little, but it was perfect to my taste. I used freshly torn romaine and left out the carrots out of personal preference. What a great main dish salad!
