Bakin’ With Bacon and King Teddy

Standard

Hello Bacon Lovers!   Welcome to the castle of bacon…..!  

Let’s see if you like the recipe I have for you today.    Mom made a big batch of fried chicken the the other day and had leftover chicken breasts so made this really yummy chopped chicken salad with bacon.   You’re gonna love it.

BACON CHICKEN CHOPPED SALAD

 

Ingredients

  • 1 package (22 ounces) frozen grilled chicken breast strips (we used leftover cooked chicken breasts and just cut them into strips)
  • 1 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/8 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 8 cups chopped romaine
  • 3 medium tomatoes, chopped
  • 6 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled

Directions

  1. Heat chicken according to package directions. Cool slightly; coarsely chop chicken.
  2. For dressing, place cheese, vinegar, water and pepper in a small food processor; cover and process until smooth. While processing, gradually add oil in a steady stream.
  3. In a large bowl, combine romaine, chicken, tomatoes and bacon. Serve with dressing.

 

Sounds good doesn’t it?   My Mom is a nut for chicken salad sandwiches and this just works with all the delicious stuff in it…………blue cheese is one of her fave cheeses too.   It’s a WIN/WIN here in the Castle and I hope you’ll give it a whirl too…………..yummy in the tummy!

Happy Saturday! 

Your King

  1. Oh, yes, we love chicken salad but with olive oil since we are all addicted to it and it’s GOOD for you, too. Love the salad with blue cheese! Off to find chickn breasts to have leftover, haha. If you want a photo of me as you kindly asked when you said I might cook with you, Teddy, you can have anything from http://www.livingwithloulou.com images on Google. I would be honored to be your sous…but IT IS NOT NECESSARY AT ALL if you already have a line-up of sous chefs. Merci and happy Saturday.

    • It would be an honor to have you be my sous for a day on a Saturday. Wouldn’t that be fun? If you have a FAVORITE bacon-ized recipe you’d like us to make together, send it to my Mom OR we can find one in the amazing cookbook your Mom sent to my Mom. I am always happy to have a pretty lady help me out in the kitchen!!!!! This chicken salad is of course “changeable” with olive oil or any other yummy stuff your Mama would like to add. Recipes are guidelines (as your Mama knows!)……….we can always be creative with recipes.

      Hugs, Teddy

  2. Teddy, you are the cutest Baking King we have ever met and that salad looks delicious but our Momma would probably use Goat Cheese instead of Blue Cheese. PawPaw would love the Blue Cheese, though. Have a Happy Caturday!

  3. I copied the recipe…and I love the funnies..OMCs
    We got 3″ of powdery dry snow. Someone just came zooming by the side of the house on skis.
    Very cold today but the snow is over. I thought of David this morning. Lo and Behold the leaf blower was quite effective getting the dry snow off the front porch, steps and a portion of the side walk.
    Any thicker I don’t think it would work but at least we have clear path to the snow in the driveway which will be easy to walk on .

    • Oh yes – when it’s powdery stuff a leaf blower works just dandy! Glad it wasn’t one of those WET HEAVY snows like we get up here. Our snow is still sort of hanging around in many spots and what IS hanging around is ICE now. Be careful out there!! Glad you like the recipe.

      Huggies, Teddy

  4. Mom says that this sounds super easy and incredibly yummy. She thinks it would be good with some extra blue cheese crumbles on top and maybe a few pecans. Thanks for another winner, Teddy.

  5. Yum! With a sub of avocado oil for Canola and no tomatoes, those being no nos on an anti-inflammatory diet…well, and using cheddar or the like instead of blue cheese which I do not care for…oh dear I think I have an entirely new recipe! LOL!
    Come to think of it, bacon. isn’t good for me either…sigh…but I guess the less my joints ache and swell, the better!

    Still, its good to cheat sometimes:)
