This is a quick dinner salad. I prefer mine with a honey mustard dressing and my husband likes his with ranch dressing. Use the dressing of your choice.

Instructions Checklist
  • Beat egg in a shallow dish.

  • Mix bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese together in a shallow dish.

  • Season chicken with Cajun seasoning. Dip chicken into beaten egg and dredge in bread crumb mixture, pressing lightly to coat evenly.

  • Heat olive oil in a deep skillet over medium-high heat. Cook breaded chicken in the hot oil until golden brown, about 10 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Drain chicken on paper towels. Slice into strips.

  • Divide lettuce, tomato, carrots, and hard-boiled eggs between 2 large pasta bowls. Top with sliced chicken; drizzle salad dressing on top.

I tripled this recipe so it would make a nice layered salad for 6 people. I also used a slightly larger amount of grape tomatoes. The recipe was delicious and looked great as a layered salad. Read More

I loved this recipe. I make fried chicken very similar to this but I never used Cajun seasoning and it was so good! This dish is great because the chicken can be hot or cold. I was having friends over for dinner last minute and I was able to whip this up quick and actually get all the bowls set and ready on the table for when they arrived. The only things I tweaked was using vegetable oil instead of olive added cucumbers and I used multi colored grape tomatoes. It was delicious fast and beautiful to look at! Read More

This was great! The one change I made during prep was to slice my chicken prior to breading. The reason I chose to do this was so that I wouldn't lose the breading while slicing and also so that I would have breading on all sides of the chicken. I also chose a spring mix over lettuce simply for the fact we prefer it better. This is a fast and easy recipe and one that is easily adaptable to what you like on your salad. Thanks for sharing!
