  • 4 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  • 1 avocado sliced
  • 3 strips of bacon, cooked til crisp and chopped
  • 1/3 cup cheese
  • 1/3 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

Chicken Marinade

  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • juice of 2 limes
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons dijon mustard


  • In a medium bowl, combine marinade ingredients until smooth, add chicken and toss to coat. Cover tightly and chill for 30 minutes or up to 8 hours.
  • Using tongs, transfer chicken to a greased grill or grill pan (you can also do this in a stovetop skillet. discard excess marinade) and cook on each side for 5-7 minutes until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear when you slice into the thickest part of the chicken. Allow to rest for a few minutes before slicing into thin strips or chopping into 1/2-inch pieces.
  • To assemble salads, arrange lettuce on the bottom, then top with chicken, tomatoes, cheese, avocados, and dressing. Serve immediately.
