Chicken with Backyard Lettuce

This is one of my mom’s favorite recipes and she wanted me to share it with you. It’s simple, easy, gluten free, and quick. We call the lettuce “backyard” lettuce because it, quite frankly, looks like something that would grow in your backyard. Enjoy.

2 5oz containers of Spring Mix lettuce
2 chicken breast cutlets, cooked and cubed
1 ripe avocado, cut in half and cubed
½ lemon
½ cup EVOO
Coarse Sea Salt
Pinch of black pepper

Place the Spring Mix (backyard lettuce) in a large bowl. Add the chicken followed by the rip avocado. On top of that, squeeze the juice out of the lemon with the rind up so as to not have lemon seeds in your salad. Sprinkle the EVOO over the mixture and add the coarse sea salt and the pinch of pepper. Toss to combine and enjoy.

    For a “gourmet” touch , replace one of the bags of spring mix with Arugula. The Arugula adds a peppery taste that compliments the other ingredients. Trust me, you could serve this easy to prepare salad to guests , they will be impressed.
