Ingredients

CHICKEN:

  • 2 chicken breast
  • onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper

VINAIGRETTE:

  • 1 cup (5g) sliced strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon oil of choice
  • ½ tablespoon honey
  • salt and pepper

SALAD:

  • 4-6 cups greens of choice
  • 1 pound (454g) strawberries, sliced
  • 6-8 sliced cooked bacon, crumbled
  • 4 hard boiled eggs, diced
  • 1-2 avocados, diced
  • ¼ cup thinly sliced red onion

Instructions

CHICKEN:

  1. Preheat grill to medium/ medium-high heat. Slice each chicken breast in half horizontally to make them thinner. Sprinkle with the seasonings. You choose how much to sprinkle. Place on grill and cook for 5 minutes on each side or until no longer pink. Remove from grill and allow to rest 10 minutes before slicing.

STRAWBERRY VINAIGRETTE:

  1. Place all vinaigrette ingredients in a mini food processor or high powered blender and process until smooth. Set aside.

SALAD:

  1. Place greens in a large bowl or platter. Arrange sliced chicken, strawberries, bacon, eggs, avocados, and onions over the bed of greens. Serve with vinaigrette.

Recipe Notes

How to change up this salad:

  1. Add blue cheese or feta
  2. Add cooked rice or quinoa
  3. Use pickled red onions
  4. Cucumbers are also a great addition
  5. Use a poppyseed dressing or even a honey mustard dressing
  6. Use rotisserie chicken or any leftover chicken you have

How to make this a mason jar salad:

  1. Spoon some vinaigrette into the bottom of the mason jar.
  2. Add sliced and cooled chicken
  3. Layer the strawberries, hard boiled eggs, onion, and finally bacon.
  4. Top with your choice of greens.
  5. I left out the avocado because it will turn brown with time so if you want it in your salad add it last minute in the morning before heading out the door.
  6. Seal with a lid and store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
