Chicken and Spring Mix Salad with Spicy Pineapple Dressing
made it | 0 reviews |
"After a meat-eating spree, we were looking for a salad that was filling as well as healthy. Lucky for us, we found a great recipe in this month's issue of Cooking Light that not only provided something light and healthy, but provided proteins (chicken) that we essentially need in order to call it a meal. Here is our spin on this recipe. As with most recipes that we find online or in magazines, we do some tweaking to fit our eating style."

Original recipe yields 2 servings (2 salads)
- Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle both sides of chicken evenly with paprika, salt, and garlic powder. Add chicken to skillet; cook until well-browned, about 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Remove from skillet.
- Combine 1/4 cup pineapple, vinegar, orange juice, and serrano pepper in a blender; process until smooth. Add remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and mix into dressing with a spoon.
- Combine remaining 1/4 cup pineapple, red bell pepper, red onion, and spring mix salad blend. Drizzle with 3/4 cup dressing and toss gently to coat. Divide salad evenly between 2 plates. Cut chicken across the grain into thin slices; divide evenly over salads. Drizzle salad evenly with remaining dressing.
