Chopped Jr.: Home Version Mystery Basket 4

Mystery Basket: Chicken Breast, Naan Chips, Dandelion Greens and Pickled Red Cabbage. 30 minutes, Go!


These are perfect ingredients! I know immediately what to do! I am going to make fried chicken salad! So I get the chicken cut so it will cook faster and I have an idea! Crush the chips and use them as a breading for my chicken! Give me chicken and my first instinct is to fry it up!

Then I get my greens wilted in butter, garlic, and seasoning! The cabbage juice is full of vinegar so I used it to make a vinaigrette for my salad. I check on my chicken and they are perfect: 160 degrees F. So I take them out any let them rest.

Then get my salad going again. I throw in some tomatoes and for mango for color and sweetness. 1 minute left!! So I get plating and throw the salad on the bottom, drizzle on the vinaigrette, add a few pieces of chicken and you know the drill 10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1,0! Let’s dig in!
