Jenny Craig Recipe Creation: Buffalo Chicken Salad

One of my most popular recipes on the blog, it's amazing to think that this meal started the day out as a chicken sandwich.


Salad Ingredients

  • 1 Jenny Craig Chicken Sandwich
  • 3 cups lettuce
  • 2 Tbsp. red onion, thinly sliced
  • 6 grape tomatoes, halved
  • ½ cucumber, diced
  • 1 Tbsp. hot sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. light ranch dressing (optional)

Garlic Bread Ingredients

  • calorie-free butter spray
  • garlic powder
  • garlic salt


  • Assemble a bed of lettuce, cucumbers, onions, and tomatoes, and any other veggies you’d like.
  • Cook the bun from your sandwich in the microwave for 30 seconds to defrost, with a paper towel between each piece.  Once removed, spray with no-calorie butter spray and add garlic seasonings to taste.  Toast in your toaster lightly.
  • Meanwhile, cook your chicken breast for 90 seconds on a small plate.  Remove to a cutting board and chop.
  • Place hot sauce in a plastic baggie.  Add your chicken, and shake to coat!
  • Place coated chicken on top of the salad.
  • Drizzle with light ranch, if desired.  Serve with garlic bread, and enjoy!
