Ingredients

  • 1-2 boneless skinless chicken breasts pounded to even thickness
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 avocados peeled pitted and cut into slices or chopped
  • 4 cups mixed green lettuce chopped
  • 3 hard boiled eggs peeled and sliced
  • 6 slices bacon cooked and chopped
  • 1 cup grape or cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1/2 cucumber sliced in rounds or chopped
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta or blue cheese (leave out for paleo & Whole 30)

For the Vinaigrette:

  • 3-4 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons sour cream (can also use tahini or just leave out for paleo & Whole 30)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil or avocado oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. In a resealable zip-top bag, add chicken, salt, pepper, and garlic powder and marinate for at least 30 minutes. Drizzle with fresh lemon and olive oil.

Grill the Chicken:

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side or until the internal temperature reaches 165 F. Remove the chicken from the grill and tent with foil. Let it rest and cool a bit for about 10 minutes and then slice or chop into bite-sized pieces.

Assemble the Salad:

  1. Whisk together all the ingredients for the vinaigrette. Drizzle 1 teaspoon over the sliced avocado (to prevent from browning).
  2. In a large bowl, add the lettuce, then top with cooked chicken, eggs, avocado, bacon, tomatoes, cucumber, and cheese. Drizzle with dressing right before serving.
