Recipe of the day
Bacon, Chicken and Avocado Salad
■1/4 pound bacon, or 4-5 slices, cut into 1/2 inch bits
■8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, chopped into 2 inch pieces, seasoned with salt and pepper
|Food Mall: Chicken Thighs|
■1/4 cup chopped red onion
■1/2 cup chopped walnut
In a pan over medium heat, cook the bacon “bits” until crisp.
Remove and set aside, but save the bacon grease in the pan. Next, add the chopped and seasoned chicken thighs to the pan and sauté in the bacon grease. Cook the chicken and turn so that every side is browned.
Allow it to simmer over low heat while you prepare the rest of the salad.
Toss the chopped romaine, avocado, chicken and bacon together. Top with red onion and walnuts.
