Jenny Craig Recipe Creation: Buffalo Chicken Salad

You heard me right…  Buffalo.  Chicken.  Salad.

I got home from spin/yoga this morning and was starving.  I was craving something flavorful and spicy… and what’s better than Jenny’s Chicken Sandwich when I need that?  I always use a yummy hot sauce with it, when I eat it the old-fashioned way.

Today, I had two beautiful tomatoes on the counter that were about to die.  So…. I decided to go for a salad!  This may be my new favorite lunch.  So easy, so delicious.  And, I’ve missed bread a little bit, especially garlic bread.  It tastes so indulgent!!!

[pinterest] Defrost your bun in the microwave, wrapped in paper towels for 30 seconds.  Spray with I Can’t Believe it’s Not Butter Spray and sprinkle with garlic powder and garlic salt as you see fit.  Place in your toaster on a light setting to toast up the bread.  Mmmm… Mmmmm!

Pour a tall glass of water, and enjoy your spicy goodness!!!

Buffalo Chicken Salad + Garlic Bread

1 Jenny Craig Chicken Sandwich
(I used bibb/butter lettuce)
2 Roma tomatoes, diced
Your favorite hot sauce
(I used 1 Tbsp. Buffalo Wild Wings Spicy Garlic Sauce + 1 Tbsp. Frank’s Hot Sauce)
JC Ranch (optional)
(I used 1 1/2 Tbsp. Litehouse Yogurt Ranch)
Garlic Powder
Garlic Salt
1.  Assemble a bed of lettuce + tomatoes, and any other veggies you’d like.  Today, I was way too hungry to chop more than just tomatoes, but I think some cucumbers, red/green onions would have been tasty as well.
2.  Cook your chicken breast for 2 1/2 minutes in the tray provided.  Remove from tray and dice.  Place hot sauce in a plastic baggie.  Add your chicken, and toss!  Place coated chicken on top of the salad.  Add salad dressing, if desired.

Couldn’t resist adding a little Ranch to the salad, but totally optional!

    I've never heard of yogurt ranch but that recipe sounds great! I buy rotisserie chickens and break it apart to use the chicken throughout the week, so maybe I'll just separate some and make it buffalo style like this! Thanks for the idea 🙂

    @Kate… It's so good! Enjoy!

    @Need… The yogurt ranch is in the refrigerated section at the grocery store, close to the bagged lettuce, etc. It's delish, and the stats are pretty good.
