Chicken Bacon Ranch Salad


MMMmmm bacon. Few foods inspire as much love or as much hate as bacon. I personally feel like, bacon that has been sourced from a local farmer or other trusted source, is an ok option. Let my bacon lovers rejoice! One of my other flavor loves, is ranch. If you need a dairy free option, you can check out my recipe here. So lets get down to the goods. Chicken bacon ranch salad. This salad is a full meal, with the addition of potatoes ensuring even the heartiest eaters will be contented. I have written this recipe in a one person serving. If you plan to prepare this for a family, remember to multiply the ingredients.

Serves 1

Cook time: 40 min 

What you will need:

1/3 pound of  chicken

1 large red potato

2 cups of mixed lettuce

1/4 cup mixed chopped veggies of choice

2 slices of bacon

1/4 cup of dressing (see here)

1 Tsp garlic powder

1/2 Tsp chives



Cut the potato into 6 chunks. Season with garlic powder and chives. Steam until tender. (If you want an extra health punch, steam in bone broth instead of water.)

While the potato bites are steaming, fry the slices of bacon until crispy.

Add your chicken to a pot of boiling water and allow to boil until the chicken is done. (Usually it will be white all the way through.) Remove from water, pat dry and slice into bite sized chunks. Sprinkle with a little salt and garlic powder to taste.

When the potato is done you are ready to assemble your salad. Toss potatoes, chicken, salad and chopped veggies all together. Crumble the bacon on top, drizzle with ranch dressing and serve!

This recipe blew my family away. The hearty flavors mixed with the light crunch of lettuce, combine to create a full course meal in just one plate. I hope you and your family find room for this meal in your upcoming cooking explorations.
