For The Vinaigrette
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1/8 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
Arrange the lettuce over a large plate. Top with the blue cheese, bacon, egg, tomato, chicken, and avocado.
In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, and garlic powder. Drizzle over the salad and enjoy immediately.
To quickly cook the chicken: Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a small non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Season the chicken on both sides with 1/8 teaspoon of salt and 1/8 teaspoon of black pepper. Cook the chicken for 4 minutes on one side; flip the chicken over and cook the second side for another 4-5 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink.
Pro Tip: Alternatively, you could use rotisserie chicken or chicken leftover from a previous recipe.
To make easy peel hard boiled eggs, follow this foolproof method:
Place the egg or eggs in a small saucepan. Fill the pan with water so that there is 1-inch of water covering the egg(s). Heat on high and bring to a boil.
Turn off the heat and leave the pan on the burner; cover for 12 minutes.
With a slotted spoon, remove the egg(s) and transfer to a boil of ice water. Let them cool for 4-5 minutes.
The peels should come right off.
The chicken, bacon, and eggs can be cooked a day ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator. Feel free to use your favorite bottled Italian dressing instead of making your own.
