15under15 PART II

Mark's been super busy at work lately, so that makes me super busy with H. But this morning, he seems to want to sleep in! Maybe I can post Part II before he wakes...

15under15 Part II
Buffalo Chicken Salad

Buffalo Chicken Salad
1 pkg chicken tenders, trimmed
salt and pepper
2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup hot sauce (such as Frank's Red Hot or Tabasco)
3 tbsp butter, cut into pieces
1 head romaine lettuce
3 stalks celery, chopped
ranch dressing packet (and mayo, milk accding to packet directions) OR bottled ranch dressing
1/4 blue cheese crumbles

Heat oil in large skillet. Sprinkle chicken tenders evenly with salt and pepper. Saute tenders until cooked through, about 5-7 minutes. Remove from heat. While chicken is cooking, heat hot sauce in a small skillet over medium heat. Add butter pieces and stir into sauce until melted. Reduce heat to low. Wash and chop lettuce into bite-size pieces. Make ranch dressing according to packet directions. Arrange lettuce and celery on plates. Dip chicken tenders into hot sauce mixture. (For little ones, skip this step.) Place on top of salad. Drizzle with 1 tbsp ranch dressing and top with 1 tbsp blue cheese. For added heat, drizzle with a little more hot buffalo sauce!
Kiddie Mod: Be sure to chop celery and chicken into bite-size pieces. Leave hot sauce off 1 or 2 tenders, and allow child to dip own food in dressing.

(He woke up... only had time for one recipe! Check back soon!)
