Ingredients

  • 1 chicken breast, sliced or chopped (or desired amount of chicken)
  • 1 cup buffalo sauce
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil or your preferred
  • 1 romaine heart, chopped
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 1/3 cup fresh corn kernels
  • 1/3 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 1 large avocado, sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped (optional)
  • Litehouse Chunky Bleu Cheese Dressing (suggested salad dressing)

Instructions

  1. Put chicken and buffalo sauce in ziploc bag and marinate for at least 30 minutes or up to overnight.
  2. Heat oil in a 12-inch pan over medium-low until oil shimmers. Add chicken. Cook, without moving, for 9 minutes or until smooth side is pale golden brown and the chicken easily releases from pan. Turn chicken; cook another 5 minutes or until your meat thermometer says your chicken is properly cooked. Remove pan from heat and let chicken stand in the pan for at least ten minutes.
  3. If you are not hoping for leftovers, add all of the salad ingredients to a large bowl. Drizzle with your desired amount of Litehouse Chunky Bleu Cheese Dressing and toss to combine.
  4. If you are hoping to have leftovers, toss all of the salad ingredient together in a large bowl except avocados and dressing. This would be a great salad to prep for work in individual servings. Just add dressing and avocado when you're ready to enjoy!
