baby greens salad with cajun stir-fried chicken by joanie

This was a simple, spicy salad. For the dressing, I recommend scallion buttermilk dressing:


  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 shallot
  • 3 handfuls of mixed baby greens
  • 2 radishes, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp scallion buttermilk or ranch dressing
2 salads


Blend the spices and salt. Thinly slice the chicken and season with spice blend and garlic.

Heat extra virgin olive oil in a large saucepan on medium-high heat. Add shallots and cook until fragrant. Add the chicken and stir-fry until fully cooked (about 5 minutes). Set aside.

Plate the greens. Add radishes and top with chicken. Drizzle with scallion buttermilk dressing or some other ranch-style dressing.

Serve immediately.

10 minutes
