Ingredients

Scale

BLUE CHEESE DRESSING

CHICKEN

SALAD TOPPINGS


Instructions

BLUE CHEESE DRESSING

  1. Place the mayo, lemon juice, and heavy cream in a glass jar and whisk together.
  2. Add the blue cheese and fresh cracked pepper. Using a fork, stir all ingredients together until well combined. 

CHICKEN

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Place the chicken tenders in an ungreased baking pan (I prefer glass).
  3. Generously douse the chicken with Twist’d Q Sweet Mesquite Chicken Rub.
  4. Bake the chicken for 20 minutes (or until cooked through).
  5. Let the chicken cool before covering and placing leftovers in the fridge. 

BACON

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Lay strips of bacon on an ungreased baking sheet.
  3. Place the bacon in the oven (on the top rack).
  4. Set a timer accordingly (10-23 minutes depending on the oven and desired crispiness).
  5. Pull bacon from the oven. Using tongs, place each slice of bacon on a plate and let cool for 2-5 minutes. 

SALAD TOPPINGS

  1. Rinse and chop the romaine. Place the lettuce in a large bowl. 
  2. Add the bacon, egg, chicken, cheese crumbles, radish, tomato, cucumber, and avocado to the bowl.
  3. Generously top off the salad with blue cheese dressing.
  4. Enjoy!

Notes

I’ve made this recipe using all three mayo options. I prefer using MCT mayonnaise, but for the most part, the flavor is the same. I’ve also made it with traditional Hellmann’s. Hellmann’s is undeniably delicious, although it’s not clean-keto-approved.

I suggest buying a block of blue cheese and crumbling it yourself. Oftentimes, pre-crumbled or pre-shredded cheeses contain anti-caking agents which can be harmful to your health.

I prefer using chicken tenderloins (because they’re more tender of course), although chicken breasts will work just as well.

You’re welcome to season the chicken however you like. Twist’d Q is my go-to because it’s easy and delicious!

Cherry or grape tomatoes are just as delicious.

I prefer English cucumbers because they’re seedless, though any cucumber will do.

Homemade blue cheese dressing is SO much better than store-bought! Definitely worth the extra work.
