Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 cup butter lettuce
  • 1 cup arugula
  • 1 organic chicken thigh
  • 1/4 cup butternut squash, steamed
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 green apple, sliced
  • 1/4 cup dairy-free cheese
  • 2 tablespoons nuts or seeds
  • Onion powder, to taste
  • Garlic powder, to taste
  • Sea salt, to taste 
  • Avocado oil, to pan fry chicken

Instructions

  1. Begin by heating a thin layer of avocado oil in a skillet (I like cast iron for crispy chicken), on medium heat *see notes
  2. Coat both sides of the chicken thigh in garlic and onion powder, alongside sea salt to taste. Place in skillet.
  3. Cook both sides of the chicken thigh until crisp (around 3-5 minutes per side).
  4. Once chicken thighs are crisped, reduce heat to low, and cover. Allow to cook until internal temperature reaches at least 165ºF. 
  5. As thighs are cooking, steam butternut squash, and slice apples and avocado. Set aside.
  6. Once chicken is thoroughly cooked, remove from heat, and cut chicken into strips. Set aside.
  7. Combine butter lettuce and arugula into a large bowl.
  8. Top with butternut squash, apples, avocado, vegan cheese, nuts or seeds of choice, and chicken thigh strips. 
  9. Top with your favorite dressing, or try our Healthy Honey Mustard Dressing!
  10. Enjoy immediately. 

Notes

*As an alternative cooking method, air fry chicken thighs before use.
