This is one of my most favorite meals I have prepared so far this year - and it was also probably the easiest!!! I had some Frank's Sweet & Spicy BBQ Hotwing Sauce left over from the latest Hawks defeat - so I used it all up on my chicken tonight! It was really tasty - and not too spicy.
Buffalo Chicken Salad
1 Head of Romaine Lettuce, Washed and Chopped
1/2 Cup Shredded Carrots
2 Ribs of Celery with Greens, Chopped
1/2 Cup Ranch Dressing (I made my own with fat free sour cream)
1/4 Cup Blue Cheese Crumbles
1 lb Chicken, Cut Into Bite Sized Pieces
1 Tbsp Vegetable Oil
Salt & Pepper to Taste
1/4 Cup Favorite Hot Sauce
Preheat a skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil and chicken to the pan. Season with salt and pepper and sear for 2 or 3 minutes. Add hot sauce and continue cooking for 3 to 6 minutes until chicken is completely cooked.
In a large bowl, combine lettuce, carrots and celery. Mix ranch dressing and blue cheese crumbles in a separate bowl.
Toss the salad with the ranch dressing and season with salt and pepper. Toss with Buffalo chicken and serve!
