Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 head lettuce (romaine or red leaf) chopped
  • 4 ribs of celery diced
  • 4 carrots peeled then grated
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes quartered
  • 2 green onions diced
  • 4 ounces blue cheese crumbles
  • 1/2 cup  kefir ranch dressing
  • 2-4 tbsp buffalo sauce

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Add the chicken breasts to a baking pan.  Toss in avocado oil and sprinkle with sea salt and pepper..
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes (flipping after 20 minutes), or until your chicken is fully cooked through (test with a food thermometer or cut one in half to check for doneness).  Allow to cool slightly, then cut into bite sized pieces.
  • In a large bowl add the lettuce, celery, grated carrot, tomatoes, green onion and blue cheese.
  • Make your buffalo dressing by combining 1/2 cup kefir ranch with 2-4 tbsp buffalo sauce (add more for your spicy preference!)
  • Add the chicken to the salad, pour 1/3 cup dressing over and toss everything to combine.  Add more dressing if needed.
  • Serve with your favorite side – I LOVE old bay potato wedges as a side to my dinner salads!
