Chopped chicken bacon ranch salad made with fresh veggies, chicken, bacon, avocado, and tossed with ranch dressing. Super easy to make, comes together in 30 minutes, and is loaded with veggies, protein, and healthy fats. Perfect for BBQs, picnics, potlucks, or just a simple lunch or light dinner.
Cook the bacon. Heat a large nonstick saute pan over medium-low heat and add bacon and sprinkle with pepper. Cook for 10 minutes, flipping once halfway through, until crispy. Remove from pan and let cool.
Remove all but about 1 tablespoon of bacon grease in the pan. Mix together the garlic powder, dill, parsley, and salt and pepper. Season chicken with the spice mixture. Add chicken to pan and cook for 15 minutes, flipping once halfway through, until golden brown and cooked through. Remove from pan and set aside to cool.
Prep the veggies while the bacon and chicken cooks. In a large bowl add chopped romaine, tomatoes, cucumber, onion, and avocado. Roughly chop bacon and chicken and add to bowl. Pour over ranch, lemon juice, and some salt and pepper and mix well to combine. Enjoy!
