This is perfect for summer. You can even buy cooked chicken if it's too hot to cook your own. This makes two large dinner portions.

This was an excellent salad. It reminds me of a Cobb Salad. I also added some crumbled feta cheese to add some zing to it, but either way it is a good one.

This had a nice zing to it. I made it as a side salad for blackened salmon, so I didn't use the chicken. I added a clove of garlic and about 3 dashes of cajun seasoning to the dressing. Definitely a keeper.

This salad was so good and a snap to put together. Instead of frying the chicken whole, I sliced the breasts into strips and then seasoned. Not a sun dried tomato fan so I left those out but because I had everything on hand, I added broccoli, carrots, cukes and topped with feta. The avocado beautifully complimented the spice of the chicken. Very nice and thank you!
