What the Beck???

Recipe Review

Today’s Recipe and Location: Buffalo Chicken Salad
Found in: The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Dinnertime
Pages 59 - 61:    Copyright:  2015 Harper Collins  OR

Blue Cheese Dressing Calories:                                              2 Tblsp. serving = 112 calories
         3 Tblsp. serving = 171 calories
         4 Tblsp. serving = 223 calories

     I made the Chicken Salad a Luncheon size, so it was 207 calories if 4 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

    I loved the kick that Buffalo Chicken had for me. The dressing was outstanding, because I have learned to absolutely love blue cheese. This could be a great go-to salad for guests, because I ate one serving and froze the other three chicken servings. They could be thawed quickly, and added to lettuce. This would make a hearty salad for guests.

 These are the ingredients that I used to make this recipe.
I made the photos smaller because they look less blurry

I began by chopping up the chives

To make the dressing, I mixed the mayo, 
sour cream, and buttermilk

They have a creamy texture, gosh,
could this be because they are
creamy ingredients?

I added in the blue cheese. Yeah!!!

and the chives

and stirred it all together

I always use mason jars when I make
homemade dressing.

The chicken was sliced horizontally so
I had two thin chicken breasts

now I'm ready to cook'em

In a skillet, I melted the butter and olive oil

I salted and peppered the breasts,
 and then cooked the chicken until it was cooked

I added Siracha as my hot sauce

I cut the chicken into four pieces. Now, I had four salads.
I froze this container, and can open it and take out one at a 
time as needed.

This was a great salad.
