Pecan Crusted Chicken Salad

Pecan Crusted Chicken Salad


"Juicy, warm chicken breasts baked in a crunchy pecan and garlic flavored coating sit on a bed of crisp romaine lettuce. Dried cranberries and mandarin oranges add a sweetness that is balanced by the tanginess of crumbled blue cheese. Ranch dressing ties the dish together to make a wonderfully light, filling salad."
