  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken thigh
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper divided
  • 8 strips cooked bacon crumbled
  • 3 cups wild lettuce mix
  • 3 oz blue cheese crumbled
  • 1 large tomato chopped

For the dressing

  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 3/4 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 3/4 tsp sugar substitute like xylitol or erythritol


  • Season the chicken with salt and half the black pepper. Cook in a skillet over medium-high heat for about 6 minutes per side, until cooked through. Once cooled, roughly chop the chicken.
  • In a small bowl, combine the ingredients for the dressing and whisk vigorously to combine.
  • Divide the lettuce among the bowls. Add the blue cheese, tomatoes, chopped chicken, and crumbled bacon. Drizzle with the dressing. Top with the remaining black pepper.


Substitute with chicken breast, if you want. This will lower the fat content of the salad.
