Buffalo Chicken Kale Salads Instructions:

Step 1: Bake the Chicken

Preheat your oven to 350ºF (175ºC). Drizzle the boneless, skinless chicken breast with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, ensuring it’s well coated. Place the chicken on a lined baking sheet and let it cook in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until fully cooked and no longer pink in the center.

Step 2: Prepare the Salad Mix

In a mixing bowl, dice the cooked chicken into bite-sized pieces. Add shredded carrots, diced celery, sliced green onions, and half of the shredded cheddar cheese to the bowl. For an extra burst of creamy indulgence, feel free to sprinkle in some optional blue cheese crumbles.

Step 3: Toss in Buffalo Sauce

This is where the magic happens! Pour 1/2 cup of buffalo sauce over the chicken and veggie mixture, ensuring that everything is coated in that irresistible tangy goodness. The buffalo sauce will infuse the salad with its iconic zesty kick, making every bite a flavor explosion.

Step 4: Assemble the Kale Salads

Now comes the green goodness! Take a bunch of fresh kale leaves and use them as the base for your salads. The robust and nutrient-packed kale will provide a hearty foundation for the bold flavors of the buffalo chicken.
