Ingredients
  

  • 1 pound chicken breast
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 6 cups romaine lettuce
  • 1 cup croutons
  • 4 ounces parmesan cheese

Optional

  • 4 small whole wheat dinner rolls

Instructions
 

  • Slice chicken breast lengthwise. This will give the breast a more even thickness, allowing it to cook more evenly as well as quicker.
  • In a small dish, add all seasonings and mix together.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium, add oil and allow to heat while seasoning both sides chicken. Carefully place into hot skillet.
  • Cook each side for 3-4 minutes allowing to brown. Remove chicken from hot skillet. Set aside.
  • Wash lettuce and lightly pat with paper towel to remove excess moisture. Chop and add to a large bowl.
  • Slice chicken thinly or into chunks. Add to bowl with lettuce. Sprinkle on croutons, add freshly grated parmesan, drizzle with dressing and gently toss. Serve immediately.

Extra

  • If not serving right away, keep all ingredients separate in sealed containers. Store in the refrigerator.
  • This is a great mason jar salad that can easily be taken on the go.
  • Great additions to this (and any) salad are: tomatoes, sliced peppers, berries, nuts and seeds. These will not only add great nutritional value but a lot of extra flavor.
