CRUNCHY BREADED CHICKEN SALAD WITH SPICY RANCH DRESSING



Crunchy Breaded Chicken Salad with Spicy Ranch Dressing 

If your on a strict diet you can go ahead and grab my grilled chicken recipe here and use it instead of the breaded chicken. I personally enjoy both grilled and breaded chicken on salad; so it basically all comes down to preference. I love this salad because you can serve the chicken warm or cold; so it can be prepared ahead of time and also makes a great salad to take to work.

  • 1 chicken breast
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
