No more boring salads, y’all. No more.

Ingredients (Makes 5-6 salads)

1 large head of iceberg lettuce

1 bag of shaved brussel sprouts (usually ~8-10 ounce bag)

2 chicken breast

2 eggs

1/2 cup bread crumbs

1/2 - 1 cup of feta cheese

2 red apples

2 cups of pecans

Vinegrette dressing of choice (homemade recipes here - can also be made without turmeric and dry mustard)

1 Tbsp olive oil

Salt + garlic powder


1) Preheat oven to 400 degrees

2) Place shaved brussel sprouts on a large baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, salt, and garlic powder

4) Whisk 2 eggs together in a bowl. Dip raw chicken in the bowl and cover with egg wash

5) Put the bread crumbs in a bowl and mix with 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp garlic powder. Dip the egg wash chicken in the bread crumbs and cover on all sides

6) Place the coated chicken on a baking sheet. Bake the brussel sprouts and the chicken for 25 minutes together in the oven
