Happy Friday, the best day of the week!
Last night I came home with the intention to cook up a delicious Pittsburgh-style chicken salad. (If you’re not familiar with a ‘Pittsburgh salad’ it usually includes any type of salad with greens and the secret ingredient…. french fries/potato wedges!) Grilled chicken, potato wedges, mushroom, tomato. However, when I opened the lettuce I discovered it was getting a little slimy and gross, so I opted to skip the “salad” part of the salad.
I seasoned the chicken with salt, pepper, olive oil, and smoked paprika
And roasted some potatoes in the oven with olive oil, salt, pepper, and Montreal Steak seasoning:
Normally I would put this all on top of a salad and top it with a light drizzle of ranch and some balsamic vinegar. But since I had improvise, I just put all of the toppings on a small plate and used a little ranch for dipping with a glass of iced cranberry juice:
This morning I got up and started my packing for a weekend in the great white north (Buffalo), hit an EFX class, and made some breakfast:
A whole grain English muffin with AB&J, a fried egg, and some warm lemon water.
For lunch I packed some leftover Pittsburgh chicken salad without the salad and a drizzle of hot sauce on top:
And for an afternoon snack I’m excited to try this Chobani greek yogurt with oats
It’s gonna be a busy one! Have a great weekend!
