Description

A hearty salad that you can make an entire meal out of.

Note: There are only about 20–30 minutes of active prep time required for this recipe. The rest is the time it takes the chicken to marinate!

From Erica Kastner of Buttered Side Up.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE MARINADE AND DRESSING:
  • 6 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 4 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
  • 2 Tablespoons Maple Syrup
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 teaspoons Dried Basil
  • ½ teaspoons Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • 2 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 2 Tablespoons Sour Cream
  • FOR THE SALAD:
  • 3  Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • 4  Cold Eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon Avocado Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 10 leaves Romaine Lettuce, Washed, Dried, Torn Into Bite-sized Pieces
  • ½  Red Bell Pepper, Diced
  • 12 whole Kalamata Olives
  • 1 ounce, weight Freshly Shredded Parmesan Cheese

Preparation

In a small jar, whisk olive oil, lemon juice, maple syrup, salt, basil, pepper, and garlic until well combined.

Place the chicken breasts in a shallow glass storage container. Pierce with a fork on both sides. Pour half of the marinade over the chicken, flip, cover, and place in the fridge to marinate for 6–8 hours.

Stir the sour cream into the remaining marinade/dressing mixture. Refrigerate until serving.

Take the chicken breasts out of the refrigerator 20 minutes before cooking.

About 30 minutes before you’re ready to serve:
Preheat oven to 400ºF (205ºC).

Place a medium saucepan of water on the stove over high heat and bring to a rolling boil (you can cover the pan to make it boil faster). Gently lower the cold eggs into the water, cover the pan, turn the heat down slightly, and set the timer for 8 minutes. After the 8 minutes, remove to a bowl of cold water to stop the cooking. Once cool, peel and slice.

Meanwhile, heat a large stainless steel skillet over medium-high heat. Add avocado oil and butter. Once the butter is melted, add the chicken breasts. Sear until nicely browned, about 5 minutes. Flip and transfer to the preheated oven and cook just until they register 165ºF (74ºC). Start checking after 6 minutes.

Remove to a plate to rest until serving. Slice across the grain.

Place 1/4 of the lettuce and peppers in a salad bowl. Arrange an egg, a few olives, and some chicken on top. Drizzle with the dressing and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Repeat with remaining ingredients and serve immediately.
