Crystal's Creation salad!

For my birthday I requested to go to J. Alexander's because i am in LOVE with their salad.
A few weeks later I was craving it again, so I decided to re-create it myself!

Crystal's creation salad
romaine or butter lettuce
fried up chicken tenders, chopped
hard boiled eggs
bacon crumbles
any dressing you like! I use honey mustard

First off, I cut my avocado in half and turn it so that the ball inside easily pops out.
Then I slice each half like this and then use a spoon to get between the skin and the inside and scoop it out.

Then I throw everything together and it is just PERFECTION.
The lettuce gives it great crunch, the chicken is warm and moist, and the avocado gives it just the right amount of creaminess!
Pair it with some breadsticks and you've got yourself a delicious dinner!

You can also add cornbread croutons on it, and it will be complete!
The recipe for Cornbread Croutons is here.

Have you seen these?

While out grocery shopping a few months ago I saw these cool Kraft Fresh Take packets.
I bought one and quickly fell in love.
It is just perfect for a really quick dinner when you have lots of things going on that night.
There are a couple different varieties and I've tried them all, but this chili lime/panko one is my favorite.
It's crunchy with a little kick.

I just threw some chicken breasts inside, shook it up, and cooked it!
So easy.
with some potatoes and veggies and there you have it, a really simple quick dinner!

Go check them out!
