buffalo chicken salad [recipe]



Hi There!
My name is Andrea Bai, and I blog at Glam Hungry Mom.


Glam Hungry Mom is a blog that encompasses everything I love: food, beauty, style, and family.  I love making recipes and experimenting in the kitchen.  I'm obsessed with beauty products and make up.  Cooking and makeup are my version of therapy sessions.  I also blog a little about my life as a college football coach's wife and a stay-at-home mom to a dashing toddler.


Okay, enough about me.  Let's get to the real reason you're here...for my Buffalo Chicken Salad recipe!  I have been making this for a while without measuring ..until now.  Buffalo wings are an obsession of mine, but they can be laden with fat.  This is what I like to make when I want the flavor without the extra fat of frying.  I'm not a huge blue cheese dressing fan, so I made my version of ranch dressing instead.

Ingredients:
  • Salad:
    • 1 romaine heart, chopped
    • 3 carrots, julienned or ribboned
    • 3 celery ribs, julienned
  •  Chicken:
    • 1 pound chicken breast
    • 1 tablespoon oil
    • 3 tablespoon butter
    • 1/4 cup Frank's hot sauce
    • salt, pepper, and paprika to taste
  • Dressing: 
    • 1/4 cup greek yogurt
    • 1 tablespoon ranch dressing packet (dry)
    • 1 tablespoon milk
    • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
Directions:
  1. Heat oil in skillet or grill pan to medium-high
  2. Season chicken with salt, pepper, and paprika
  3. Cook for 10-15 minutes until done
  4. While chicken is cooking, arrange salad bowl by layering romaine, carrots, and celery
  5. Mix all ingredients for dressing together in a bowl until well combined
  6. Remove chicken from heat and cut into cubes
  7. Heat butter and Frank's in medium pan
  8. Add cubed chicken and toss (the longer you let the chicken rest in the sauce, the spicier it will be)
  9. Place chicken on top of salad
  10. Top with dressing or place dressing on the side (whatever your preference)
  11. Optional: add cheese of your choice if you want that little extra somethin' somethin'
