Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes


One 4-oz. raw boneless skinless chicken breast cutlet, pounded to 1/2-inch thickness

1/2 tsp. salt-free seasoning (like Mrs. Dash Original)

4 cups chopped romaine lettuce

1/2 cup chopped and seeded tomato

2 large hard-boiled egg whites, chopped

1 tbsp. crumbled blue cheese

1 tbsp. pre-cooked crumbled bacon

1/2 oz. (about 1 tbsp.) chopped avocado

2 tbsp. low-fat vinaigrette dressing


Bring a grill pan (or skillet) sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Season chicken with seasoning and sauté until cooked through, about 3 minutes per side.

In a large bowl, combine lettuce with remaining ingredients except dressing.

Slice chicken and add to the salad. Top with dressing, or serve with dressing on the side.
