Favorite Ingredient Friday - Blackened Chicken Salad


Today I'm going to share with you one of my favorite recipes of all time. I love salad! I love vegetables in general (I will make up a big pot of my special recipe Brussels sprouts for lunch sometimes - sick, huh?), but salads are one of my favorite all time meals.

The recipe I'm posting today is from Applebee's. They no longer have it on the menu, which is a travesty, because it is so delicious. It is a little bit of work, but well worth the effort!

Blackened Chicken Salad
Marinade:

1 cup water
3 T. lime juice
2 T. soy sauce
1/2 t. Worcestershire sauce

Marinate 2 chicken breast overnight or all day.

Spice Mix:

1/2 T. salt
1 t. sugar
1 t. paprika
1 t. onion powder
1/2 t. garlic powder
1/2 t. cayenne pepper
1 t. black pepper
1/2 t. white pepper

Sprinkle on both sides of marinated chicken. In a preheated pan, melt a couple tablespoons of butter and sear chicken breasts 2-3 minutes on each side. Finish of on grill or under broiler, until chicken is no longer pink inside.

Salad:

Lettuce
1/2 cup shredded red cabbage
1/2 cup shredded carrots
1 large diced tomatoes
1 sliced boiled egg
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Mix salad ingredients and set aside.

Dressing:

1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1/4 cup honey
1 T. yellow mustard
1 T. white vinegar
1/8 t. paprika

Toss dressing into salad mixture. Top with chicken and serve. Enjoy!!

Hey, this was my favourite salad there!! Thanks for finding and posting the recipe for me! (I haven't been there in about a year and a half, so I had no idea it wasn't available anymore)

that sounds great! I didn't realize that they didn't have it anymore either.

Oh, Lori, this does sound wonderful! Thank you so much for sharing it!

This would be great to make for a family lunch or dinner sometime during the summer months (when I'm looking for cool/non-or minimally cooking things).

Blessings,

I haven't been to an Applebees in awhile and I agree... Horrifying. I LOVE this salad so thank you so much for sharing the recipe. I wonder why they do that? Terrible news!

Have a good day!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE anything blackened!! I've been looking for a good blackened marinade. This would be great for just having blackened chicken, too. I'm excited to try it!! Thanks!!
