"I'm always in need of quick recipes," says Tanya Brady from Montague, Michigan. "I like to serve this healthy salad with garlic cheese bread and peanut butter cookies for dessert." TIP: Tanya stirs up a big batch of the seasoning rub and keeps it on hand, so she can start this salad in no time.


  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1-1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 package (10 ounces) Italian-blend salad greens
  • 4 plum tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, julienned
  • 1 cup seasoned salad croutons
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup salad dressing of your choice


  1. Combine the seasonings; rub over chicken. Broil or grill, uncovered, over medium heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until juices run clear.
  2. On a serving platter or individual plates, arrange the salad greens, tomatoes and red pepper. Slice chicken; place over salad. Top with croutons and dressing.

    Yummm. I've been going through old issues and had this one marked to try. Glad I did. I switched the sweet red pepper for avocado and used ranch but caesar would be good too.

    Excellent recipe, I used ranch dressing whichI think was perfect with the spicy chicken
