Thursday's Buffalo Chicken Salad $6.89

Mmmmm, time for more heat in our tummies!

This time Buffalo style!

Buffalo Chicken Salad

1 lb chicken breasts, sliced VERY thin $ 2.30
1 sliced green pepper .20
1 sliced red, orange, or yellow pepper .25
2 cloves minced garlic (2 tsp or to taste).30
thinly sliced onion (approx. 1 large).40
Lousiana or Buffalo style Hot Sauce .20
approx. 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese .50

Salad of choice (we recommend romaine or iceberg lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes and maybe olives) $ 2.49
we included a cucumber in ours .25
Total: $6.89
A dressing like ranch was optional, but other than myself, no one opted for dressing.

Saute onoin, garlic and pepper in 1 tbsp olive oil (and 1 tbsp butter if you want the flavor/richness - not essential) until very soft. Remove from pan. Spray pan with cooking spray (if necessary) and saute chicken until cooked. Drain and add hot sauce until lightly coated. Add peppers and onions and more hot sauce to taste. Cook 3-4 minutes to combine flavors then sprinkle with mozzarella cheese (maybe 1/2 cup) and cover until cheese is melted. Serve warm chicken over salad of choice with ranch dressing.
