GRILLED CHICKEN SALAD, RESTAURANT STYLE

I used to make this in 2 different steakhouse type restaurants I cooked in. It started out, I made them one day for myself & another worker for lunch when doing prep work one day when we weren't open. It was so well liked, we had people ordering it & then at one of the restaurants, I put it on the menu.

I'm sure somewhere, someone has done a similar salad to this but I didn't get it from anywhere!

You need to cook the chicken as I instruct for the full flavor of this dish & don't drown it in dressing, so it doesn't cover up the flavor of the chicken.

Enjoy!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
The seasoning on this chicken is delicious! The combo of the garlic and the Montreal seasoning is perfect. This is one flavorful and satisfying salad.

Ingredients

1
boneless, skinless chicken breast
lettuce
green onions
tomato wedges
shredded cheddar cheese
California style garlic salt /parsley
Montreal or Quebec Chicken Seasoning
your favorite salad dressing
real bacon bits (optional)
croutons

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Prepare the salad with the lettuce, onions, & tomato wedges & set in fridge while you cook the chicken.
2
Place the chicken breast on indoor or outdoor grill & cook one side, about 5 or 6 minutes on about 400° on outside grill.
3
Turn over & brush with butter & sprinkle 2 seasonings on it & continue cooking until just done, no longer, or it will dry out.
4
Remove from heat & lay on cutting board & let set a few minutes for the juices to redistribute.
5
Now, cut the chicken breast on an angle in strips & place on cold salad while still warm. (Refer to picture.)
6
Garnish with the shredded cheese & then a small amount of your favorite salad dressing. I like either ranch or 1000 Island on mine. Top with croutons & real bacon bits.

Enjoy!
