WOOHOO! Let me say it again, readers. WHOOOOOHOOOOO!!! I just got my federal tax return and promptly paid off both my credit cards. No more credit card debt for me! What a great feeling!
This meal may seem simple, but it was all about celebration. I knew, when my right hand hit “pay” on my credit card website, I wanted to have a beer in my left hand. So yeah…this salad was totally planned around beer. (What…like you’ve never planned a meal around a drink before.)
As I tend to do with green salads, I don’t have amounts for the greens and vegetables here. Just use the amount that looks good to you, grab a beer, and enjoy!
Buffalo Chicken Salad
an “Apple a Day” original
1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/3 c. plus 3 TBSP buffalo wing sauce
1-2 TBSP olive oil
carrots, peeled and chopped
red onion, finely chopped
bleu cheese dressing
additional bleu cheese crumbles (optional)
1. At least one hour before or up to overnight, marinate chicken in 1/3 c. buffalo sauce.
2. Heat large saute pan over medium heat. Add oil and cook chicken thoroughly, approximately 7-8 minutes per side. Let rest and chop into bite-size pieces.
3. Meanwhile, assemble rest of salad. Add chicken when ready then dress and top with additional bleu cheese crumbles, if desired.

Congratulations on being Credit Card Debit FREE!!!! What an exciting day!The Salad looks awesome! Thanks for sharing!
Congrats on being debt free!!Do you think you could sub ranch dressing for blue cheese?
Kelsey congratulations! I know what a great feeling it is to have some of the debt lifted. So proud of you. This salad looks like a great celebratory meal with a beer. Almost like bringing the bar to your home. Yummy!
Katie, you absolutely could sub in ranch. My husband and I both love the traditional bleu cheese, but ranch would also work fine. Hope you enjoy it!
Buffalo chicken is my favorite, and it goes perfectly with a cold beer! This salad looks great! Congrats on your debt!
We paid off all our cc debt last year, so I know, the feeling. I don't know the feeling of a tax return though. It's been years since we've seen one if those!
Nice work, That Girl! We are SOOOO looking forward to the day we can pay off M's debt. He has much more than I do, but we're determined!
