Recipe Ingredients for Buffalo Chicken Salad

16 ounce boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
56 g Cholula (2 tablespoons)
2 teaspoons olive oil
2 hearts Romaine lettuce, cut into 1-inch strips (about 8 cups)
4 celery stalks, thinly sliced
2 carrots, coarsely grated
2 scallions, green part only, sliced

Recipe Directions for Buffalo Chicken Salad

  1. Preheat the broiler. Put the chicken between 2 sheets of waxed paper and pound with a mallet or hammer so the chicken is an even thickness of about 3/4-inch, then cut the chicken crosswise into 1/2-inch strips.

  2. In a large bowl, combine the hot sauce and the oil, add chicken and toss until the chicken is well coated.

  3. Arrange the chicken on a baking sheet and broil until it is cooked through, about 4 to 6 minutes, turning once.

  4. In a large bowl combine the Romaine, celery, shredded carrots and scallions. Toss with the dressing.

  5. Divide the greens between 4 plates, top with the chicken.

  6. Serve with extra hot sauce.
