  • 4 chicken breasts boneless skinless
  • 4 cups lettuce
  • 1/4 cup white onion diced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro chopped
  • 4 oz bacon cooked and crumbled
  • 4 avocado large, cubed
  • 1/2 cup Satisfying Salad Dressing or balsamic vinegar dressing of choice


  1. Cook chicken breasts according to package instructions.

  2. While chicken is cooking, prepare fresh ingredients. Dice the onion; cook and crumble the bacon; spin your lettuce; chop your cilantro.

  3. If you don't already have your dressing made ( you should always have some Satisfying Salad Dressing on hand) now is the time. 

  4. When the chicken is done, slice into 1-inch cubes. 

  5. Place your lettuce in a bowl and top with chicken, bacon, onion, and cilantro. When you are ready to serve, cube and add your avocado, then toss with dressing. 

Recipe Notes

The chicken does not have to be hot to serve this salad! Often I will prepare all the ingredients a day or two before, then when my avocados are ripe, I will add everything to a bowl, cube the avocados and add the dressing. It is the ultimate quick meal for those tight evenings!
