Reviews for Bacon Chicken Chopped Salad
"Grilled plain chicken breast using citrus and basil seasoning and used lite bleu cheese. We loved it...recipe is a keeper."
""My family isn't fond of blue cheese so I substituted feta. The flavor was great but super salty so we combined the finished dressing with ranch and it was the perfect blend!""
"Made this last night, we enjoyed it very much. Fair warning, the blue cheese dressing is VERY strong. If you're not a big fan of blue cheese use a very mild blue. Would be great with some Buffalo flavoring on the chicken.Sue StetzelField Editor ManagerTaste of Home Magazine"
