Loaded to the max with bite size tender rotisserie chicken pieces, super flavorful crispy bacon, vibrantly tasty red onion, rich eggs, creamy avocado, bold blue cheese, and lightly sweet tomatoes.
Vinaigrette Dressing (or use
red wine vinegar
and freshly ground black pepper
chopped into bite size pieces
cooked rotisserie chicken,
thinly sliced (1/3 cup)
crumbled, or 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (we prefer cheddar)
For the bacon:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a rimmed 18 by 13-inch baking sheet with aluminum foil.
Lay bacon strips in a single layer on the baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven until crisp, about 12 - 20 minutes (bake time varies based on thickness of bacon).
Drain on paper towels, then chop.
For the eggs:
Add 1-inch of water to a 4 quart pot or saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
Add eggs, cover with lid and let cook 14 minutes. Transfer to a bowl of ice water right away. Let rest 15 minutes, then peel eggs and chop.
Layer lettuce into a large salad bowl or among five serving plates. Top with bacon, eggs, tomatoes, onions, avocado and blue cheese.
Whisk dressing again then pour over salad and serve.
Use a chilled dressing for a refreshing salad.
Rinse chopped lettuce leaves well then run through a salad spinner to dry well so dressing sticks to lettuce. I like this one
Wait to add dressing until ready to serve so lettuce doesn't wilt.
Don't chop avocado until ready to serve as it will start to brown.
For less harsh red onion rinse after chopping under water and drain.
