  • Salad: Divide salad greens among individual plates. Place a mound of chicken in center of each. Arrange turkey-style bacon, tomatoes, egg wedges and red onion around chicken. Sprinkle with blue cheese. Drizzle with dressing just before serving.

Variation:

Use diced ham in place of chicken and regular bacon in place of turkey-style bacon. Use shredded Cheddar, Swiss, Gouda or your favourite cheese instead of blue cheese.
