Healthy Buffalo Chicken Salad Bowls

Serves 2


Ingredients

  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken thighs

  • 6 cups chopped greens (I used a mixed of chopped spinach and romaine)

  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots

  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

  • 2 persian cucumbers, sliced into thin rounds

  • 1 cup roasted broccoli (can also just use raw — chop into small pieces)

  • 1/2 cup to 3/4 COOKED quinoa

  • green onion for topping + diced avocado

  • The New Primal Buffalo Sauce

Directions

  • Cooked quinoa according to package instructions.

  • Heat 1-2 tsp oil in a cast iron pan over medium heat. Toss chicken thighs in buffalo sauce and add to the cast iron pan. Cook chicken for about 4-5 minutes per side (until browned and cooked through)

  • While the chicken is cooking, chop veggies.

  • Separate veggies, quinoa and chicken into individual bowls. Toss with additional buffalo sauce and top with green onion + avocado.
