Salads are the perfect, quick and healthy lunch, but when it’s cold outside, a cold meal isn’t appealing. Try our Warm Mushroom Chicken Caesar Salad instead.
4 to 5 Baby Bella mushrooms, chopped
¼ c. chopped bell pepper
1/8 c. red onion, diced (opt.)
2 to 3 T. e.v. olive oil
½ c. smoked or grilled chicken breast, chopped
Sea salt and garlic powder, to taste
Romaine lettuce, torn
1 T. Feta Cheese or Parmesan cheese
Caesar Salad Dressing (see recipe below)
Sauté mushrooms, bell pepper and onions in olive oil for one to two minutes. Toss in smoked or grilled chicken breast. Cook and stir until warm. Season all to taste with sea salt and garlic powder. Add to a bed of torn, romaine lettuce with feta or parmesan cheese, and Caesar salad dressing. Toss and enjoy! Chow!
