How to Make Black and Blue Salad

Step-by-Step

  • 1Add all of the dressing ingredients to a jar with a lid and shake well to combine. Store in the fridge until you are ready to dress your salads.
  • 2Rinse chicken breasts and pat dry. Place in between two sheets of plastic wrap. Pound out until uniform thickness, about 1/2 inch.
    Coat breasts with Cajun seasoning- I used Bobby Webb's Cajun spice mix- check out his recipe here on JAP.
    Spray pan with cooking spray- I like Pompeians 100% Grapeseed Oil spray- it's all natural, low-cal, and has a high smoke point.
    Heat pan over medium to medium-high heat. Cook breasts about 3-4 minutes each side, or until no longer pink.
    Transfer to a plate and let them rest for 10 minutes.
  • 3While the chicken is resting, get your salads assembled.
    Cut breasts into bite-size pieces, and place on salads.
    Shake dressing and use a spoon to drizzle over salads.
    You can garnish with some chopped green onions or chives if you like.
    Enjoy!

Chicken is my go-to when I just can't figure out what to make for dinner. Whenever I find myself wondering what to make, I grab a package at the market...
