- 2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- Salt and pepper
- ½ cup buffalo wing sauce (recommended: Frank's)
- 3 heads romaine lettuce, chopped
- 4 stalks celery, diced
- 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
- 4 green onions, sliced
- ⅓ cup crumbled blue cheese
- ¼ cup minced fresh cilantro
- Preheat a grill or grill pan over medium high heat.
- Season the chicken breasts liberally with salt and pepper on both sides. Using a pastry brush (I like this silicone one) brush one side of the chicken breasts with about ¼ of the buffalo wing sauce.
- Place the chicken, sauce side down, onto the preheated, greased grill grate or grill pan. Brush the top of the chicken with another ¼ of the buffalo wing sauce.
- Cook chicken for 4-5 minutes, or until sear marks appear, then flip. Brush top side with an additional ¼ of the buffalo wing sauce. Cook for an additional 4-5 minutes, or until sear marks appear, then flip. Brush top with last of buffalo sauce. Cook an additional 3-4 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.
- Remove the chicken to a plate and let rest for 10 minutes before slicing thinly.
- Meanwhile, assemble the salads by filling bowls with lettuce, celery, tomatoes, green onions, and blue cheese. Add on the chicken, and then sprinkle with cilantro. Drizzle on the dressing.
