Crispy Chicken Salad

Before I get started if you want to be an author on this blog, and we would LOVE you to be! Email me at I am so excited so lets get cookin!

Ok, I love this salad and so does my hubby. Its soooo good. Its a great summer meal and don't worry, you can trick your hubby into thinking its a meal because it has pasta and protein...what more do you need?? Plus if your kids like chicken nuggets you can throw them into something healthy right?

Lettuce (1 package or about a head of lettuce)- I like Romaine or mixed

Angel Hair Pasta (as much as you want, I usually do enough for 2 people, or about a quarter size around)

Cheddar Cheese (shredded-just a small handful, maybe about 1/8 of a cup or to your liking)

1 large tomato chopped

1 large pepper (usually red, but here I didn't have red so I used green- still good)

Crispy or breaded chicken (choose your amount and use whatever. We have used chicken nuggets, chicken patties (2) and some may want to make their own breaded chicken). Bake as directed and slice into strips.

Now this is all for looks: Throw the lettuce in a bowl. Throw cooked chicken on top next. Then throw on the pepper, spreading out in a beautiful way. Then add the chopped tomato. Next throw the angel hair pasta on top in a little bunch. Then sprinkle with cheddar cheese and a few left over tomatoes.

Once its time to eat, mix it up like crazy!! Throw on your favorite dressing. I got this from UNOS a restaurant that I use to work at and they use honey mustard, which I don't like. So I use ranch...and it is divine! Enjoy!
