I created this recipe for a contest. It was not a winner, but my family loves it! It's a nice, light (yet hearty) salad, perfect for a warm summer day. Adding the Ranch seasoning mix gives it a wonderful flavor.
1Heat oven to 400 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine the potatoes, carrots, shallots and the entire envelope of Ranch seasoning. Drizzle with 1/3 cup on the vegetable oil. Mix well with hands, making sure all ingredients are coated with oil and seasoning. Transfer to a rimmed, non-stick baking sheet, spreading vegetable out to make one layer.
2Roast for 30-40 minutes or until vegetables are tender and golden brown.
3Meanwhile, in a 10" non-stick skillet, over medium high heat, saute the chicken breast chunks in the remaining oil for 15-20 minutes or until cooked through and pieces are browned around the edges.
4To serve: Place the baby spinach in a LARGE bowl. Add the roasted vegetables and the sauteed chicken. Drizzle with the 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and toss gently to combine. Serve with lemon wedges on the side.
