A great salad needs four elements: a tasty dressing, a fatty ingredient, texture, and some protein. This one has the best versions of all four!


    • 4 boneless chicken thighs
    • 1 head romaine lettuce, chopped
    • ½ cup cherry tomato(100 g), halved
    • ½ red onion, thinly sliced
    • 2 avocados, chopped


    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 jalapeño pepper, minced
    • ½ teaspoon chili powder

    1. In a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients for the chicken marinade.
    2. Toss in the chicken thighs and marinate for at least one hour.
    3. In a cast-iron skillet, cook chicken on high heat until there is a nice sear on the surface of the chicken, and the inside is no longer pink. Roughly four minutes each side. Set chicken aside.

    5. Slice cooked chicken thighs and add to the salad bowl.
    6. In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients for the dressing. Mix well.
