I just love putting chicken salad on top of a salad! It’s filling and refreshing. Make a salad any way that you like and plop your favorite chicken salad on top. In this picture I used -

Salad -

Baby Salad Greens
Yellow Squash – chopped
Zucchini  Рchopped
Tomato – chopped
Celery – chopped
Hard Boiled Egg – sliced
Home Made Croutons 

Chicken Salad -

1 Can of White Chicken Breast ( or 1 grilled chicken breast chopped up)
Celery – chopped
Dill Pickle Spear – chopped
Mayonnaise – to taste
Salt and Pepper – to taste

I plate the salad, place the egg on the side and plop a scoop of chicken salad on top. Sprinkle the croutons around. Now use whatever salad dressing you like. I like Ranch on this. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 2 Boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 8 Slices precooked bacon
  • 2 C Shredded cheddar cheese
  • Barbeque sauce
  • Lettuce – I like romaine
  • 4 Kaiser rolls
  • Butter
  • Oil – I like coconut oil to pan fry with – it’s so good for you. Makes it a healthier meal.
  • Panko crumbs or bread crumbs
  • 2 eggs

Directions:

Take 2 breasts and slice them in half so that they are thinner. Place in a one gallon zip lock bag. Make sure to get out the air and seal the bag. Pound flat with a meat tenderizer. Use the smooth side so you don’t puncture the bag.
Pour oil into frying pan to cover the bottom. Have heat on medium. Take eggs and mix them up in a bowl. Take panko crumbs and pour onto a plate. Take chicken and dip into egg mixture and then into the crumbs. Stick the crumbs onto both sides. Place into hot frying pan and oil. Brown on both sides. Put cheese onto top of each breast, put 1/4 tsp of water into frying pan cover with lid to melt cheese.
Remove from frying pan onto a plate covered with paper towels. Take kaiser rolls, cut in half, butter both cut sides. Place butter side down into frying pan. Do not put into the oil. Grill the rolls until toasty.
Assemble sandwich. Kaiser roll on bottom, chicken, cheese, bacon, barbeque sauce, lettuce and kaiser roll on top.

Slow Cooker Lemon Pepper Chicken

Ingredients:

  • 1 Whole Chicken
  • 2 tsp Lemon Pepper
  • 1 tsp Garlic Salt
  • 1/2 Lemon cut into 2 slices

Directions:

lemon pepper chicken

Place lemon slices on bottom of slow cooker. Remove chicken from wrapping place in slow cooker on top of lemon slices. Sprinkle with Lemon Pepper and Garlic Salt. Cook on high for 3 hours. Remove from slow cooker and place chicken on roasting pan or cookie sheet. Bake in oven for 1/2 hour at 400 degrees. This is to brown the skin. It will not brown in the slow cooker. I don’t care about all the pics you see on Facebook showing a beautiful brown chicken. It’s simply not possible. Those aren’t real recipes and don’t turn out right. If you don’t care about brown skin, then leave it in the slow cooker for 1 more hour.
Make gravy from the drippings in the slow cooker. Very yummy!
