 Roasted Red Pepper Chick'n Salad

This is a quick and easy recipe that is omnivore approved! All you need is a few ingredients and about 10 minutes. I ate mine with a bowl of guacamole on the side. If you're in a hurry, just leave it out.

What You Need 
2 pieces Gardein Chick'n Scallopini 
4 Roasted Red,Yellow, and Orange Peppers (Trader Joes sells them in a jar) 
1 Handful Daiya Cheese (Any Flavor, I used Mozzarella) 
1 Big bowl of Organic Baby Lettuces

1 Corn Tortilla (I use sprouted ones) 
Canola oil 
Cayenne (If you like it hot)
Garlic Pepper (A mix of garlic granules and black pepper)

1 Avocado, large
Favorite hot sauce 
3 Green Onion Stalks or 1/4 of a red onion, Finely Chopped

What You Do 

Slice the tortilla into 6 triangles. Cut in half, then in quarters, then in 1/8ths. Place on foil lined baking sheet. Toss in canola oil, salt, pepper, and cayenne if using. Place in oven on 500*F until crispy. Tip: If you have a toaster oven, then place them in there on the highest heat setting. They will cook faster and save you energy.

Place the 2 pieces of frozen scallopini on a medium non-stick pan on medium heat. Pour 1/4 cup of the roasted red pepper juice in and let simmer. Meanwhile, cut up the roasted peppers and place them in the pan to cook with the chicken for ten minutes, or until all is heated thoroughly. Sprinkle with salt, garlic pepper, and cayenne. As you see the liquid start to brown and evaporate, the chicken should be done. Use your spatula to cut it into bite sized pieces. (It will be soft enough to split easily.) 

If making the guacamole, place all the ingredients in a bowl and mash. Use as much hot sauce as you want to make it hot. If you don't like the heat, just sprinkle in some salt and garlic pepper to taste. 

Assemble that Salad
Place your baby lettuce in a big bowl. Top with chicken and red pepper mixture. Sprinkle a handful of Daiya cheese on top. Take chips and sprinkle around edges. If using guacamole, scoop it onto the chips with a piece of the chicken and send your taste buds to heaven! 

Simple. Healthy. Delicious.
