2 Breasts of Chicken… cut in half makes four, killer math skrillz.
2 Cups flour
1 TSP cayenne pepper
1 TSP steak seasoning
A handful of romaine lettuce
A handful of fresh baby spinach
1 cup Green Onions
1 Red pepper (or whichever color best pleases your chromatic palate)
1/2 cup walnuts
1-2 Clementine Oranges
1 1/2 Cups sauteed mushrooms
A bit of vinegar
A bit of olive oil
A pinch of salt
1/4 Cup Olive Oil
1/2 Cup Soy Sauce
3 TBS Vinegar
2 TBS Ginger
1 Clove Garlic, chopped
1 TBS Brown Sugar or Honey
A splash of water
Sprinkle of Salz und Pfeffer
Step 1: Slap’n’Chop
Boyfriends, keep your distance… kidding. Get out your sharpest knife and chop up all veggies you want to include in your salad. Mix together with spinach and lettuce.
Step 2: Flour and Cook the Chicken/Sautee Shrooms
Combine flour and other varied spices. Cut chicken in half and dip into floury mixture. Cook chicken on stove with a little bit of olive oil until the outside is seared, then dip into floury mixture one more time. Return to pan and cook until done, OR you can stick in the broiler to ensure thorough cooking. Cut chicken into salad-sized pieces. For the shrooms, brown about 2 TBS of butter in a pan and then add mushrooms, cooking on med/high for about 4 minutes.
Step 3: Combine EVERYTHING
Take the mixed greens and veggies and add sauteed shrooms. Add spicy, crispy, delicious chicken. Toss with dressing (below) and put it in your mouth. Bite sizes, please. The Heimlich is not intended as a part of this meal.
Combine ingredients from the dressing recipe and drizzle on bomb salad. That’s the long and short of it.
