Chicken Salad
Allison Beck

Growing up, there was a local market in my hometown that had this BLT chicken salad that we'd get made into sandwiches or packed alone into half pints, even by the quart container if we were having friends over for lunch and short on time.

Sweet and moist roast chicken is tossed with salty and crisp bacon, then combined with juicy tomatoes and crisp green lettuce. Toss it with mayo, or do as I did and toss it with a bit of bacon fat for added depth of flavor and ease. Serve it atop a bed of greens with scones for a ladies lunch, or pack it between slices of toasted multigrain bread for a healthy, hearty lunch that is sure to satisfy.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 bone-in, skin-on chicken breasts
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 10 slices applewood-smoked bacon, cooked to a crisp and crumbled into ½-inch bits, bacon fat reserved
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cup baby spinach or lettuce, chiffonaded
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise (optional)

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Season the skin side of the chicken liberally with salt and pepper and bake for about 30 minutes, until the chicken is just cooked through. Cool completely.

Tear chicken meat off bone, including skin, if desired. Toss with torn bacon, halved tomatoes, lettuce, and a bit of bacon fat, or mayonnaise, if desired, to combine. Season to taste. Serve immediately.
