Good morning, friends! Today I’d like to share a little recipe that we threw together for dinner last night that turned out delicious!
Kris and I are both lucky if we can be home by 5pm on weeknights, so when it comes to dinners we like quick, healthy, and simple ingredients. This simple chicken salad turned out great. The only thing that took a little time was the roasted potatoes (but it’s easy to multitask while they are baking).
Habanero Ranch Chicken Salads
– 2 chicken breasts
– olive oil
– oven roasted potatoes (I used Montreal steak seasoning in place of garlic salt this time)
– lettuce (we used a spring mix with baby spinach)
– banana peppers
– hot sauce
– 2 slices of cheese (Habanero Monterey Jack from Target, mmmmmm)
Instructions: While the potatoes are baking, grill chicken or sear in a pan with olive oil and desired seasoning. Once chicken is cooked, melt 2 slices of cheese on top. Top lettuce with chicken, roasted potatoes, banana peppers, and add hot sauce and ranch as desired for dressing.
Just as a side note – I cannot tell the difference between regular ranch and this Wegman’s Ranch Yogurt Dressing, which is a major win.
Warning – this hot sauce is HOT. Use sparingly (don’t make the same mistakes I did)!
