CHICKEN BACON AVOCADO SALAD WITH ROASTED ASPARAGUS
 
Author: Pinch of Yum
 
Serves: 4
 
INGREDIENTS
  • 8 slices good quality thick bacon (smoked is yummy)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 cups chopped asparagus
  • 1 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning (more to taste)
  • 4 cups spinach, cut or torn into bite-sized pieces
  • 8 ounces chicken breast slices (I get it from the deli counter)
  • 1 large ripe avocado
  • ¼ cup good quality olive oil (I got mine from a Hampton's Lane package)
  • ¼ cup good quality balsamic vinegar
  • fresh basil for topping
 
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Fry the bacon according to package directions (I go for crispy on this one). Drain on a paper towel lined plate and crumble or chop into bite-sized pieces.
  2. Melt the butter in a small skillet over high heat. Add the asparagus, sprinkle with lemon pepper, and saute until golden brown and roasty-looking. I like the little charred pieces so I cooked it a little longer - you can cook for as long as you like depending on how you like your asparagus.
  3. Cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces. Layer the spinach, chicken, asparagus, and bacon. Cut the avocado into slices and scoop out with a spoon; arrange over the top of the salad. Drizzle or toss with the olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Top with fresh basil, salt and pepper.
