Total Time: 25 Minutes, Servings: 4 Servings

Ingredients :
    BLACKENED CHICKEN:
  • 3/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 3/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil (if needed)
  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts (3–4 pieces)
  • SALAD:
  • 12 cups baby spinach or chopped romaine
  • 4 large eggs, hard-boiled, peeled and sliced
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 large cucumber, sliced
  • 1 cup baby bella mushrooms, sautéed
  • 1/2 cup red onion, chopped
  • 6 slices cooked turkey bacon, crumbled
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese (optional)
  • 1–2 avocados, sliced
  • RED WINE VINAIGRETTE:
  • 1/3 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup or honey
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil



Instructions :
  • Take chicken out of the package and pat dry with paper towels. Add spices — paprika, garlic powder, chili powder, sea salt, black pepper and cayenne pepper — in a small bowl. Coat each chicken breast with spice mixture.
  • To cook the chicken, you can either grill it on an indoor or outdoor grill or sear it on the stovetop. To sear: add 1 Tablespoon olive oil to a large skillet over medium heat. Place chicken breasts in hot oil. Cook chicken about 6–7 minutes on each side, or until juices run clear. Remove chicken from skillet and let sit for 5 minutes to cool before slicing for the salad. This step can be done a day in advance.
  • While the chicken cooks, make the dressing by whisking together all the ingredients in a small bowl or glass jar.
  • Divide the spinach or romaine among 4 plates (or containers if you’re making this for meal prep). Arrange equal portions of blackened chicken, hard-boiled egg, tomatoes, cucumber, mushrooms, red onion, avocado, bacon and blue cheese on top of the greens.
  • Just before serving, top salad with 1–2 Tablespoons of the red wine vinaigrette dressing or your favorite dressing.
