Lemon Peppered Chicken & Avocado Dressing
Great as a light lunch or dinner! So light you will have room for these amazing lemon bars for dessert!
- 1 Boneless skinless chicken breast, sliced
- 3 slices of bacon, diced
- 1 Lemon
- 1/2 teaspoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- Olive Oil
- 1 Avocado
- 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 4 cups spring greens mix
Start by heating a skillet drizzled with Olive oil over medium high heat.
Slice the chicken ( you can also cube it, I like thin pieces)
Add the chicken & bacon to the hot skillet and saute for about 3-5 minutes still over medium high heat to obtain a nice brown color. Reduce the heat to medium low. Season with the paprika and onion powder. Stir.
Squeeze the juice from half of a lemon over the chicken, sprinkle with the sugar and mix well. This will help the chicken to caramelize a bit and the slight touch of sweetness is amazing.
Continue cooking until the chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 5 more minutes. Add a pinch of salt and pepper. Remove from heat. Set aside.
Cut the avocado in half, remove the seed and scoop the avocado halves from the skin. Slice.
Add the avocado to a blender ( I used our single serve Nutri Ninja! absolutely the best ever) , squeeze the juice from the other half of the lemon into the blender. Add a pinch of salt & pepper and the cup of Greek yogurt.
Blend until smooth. Drizzle in about 1 tablespoon of Olive oil, blend again.
Add the salad greens to your chosen dish, top with the chicken and drizzle with dressing.
Toss the salad greens in the dressing and top with chicken.
