Bacon Buffalo Chicken Salad is an upgrade from the regular with creamy, panko crusted goat cheese croutons and a simple avocado dressing!
I like to spice things up.
I have an undying love for all things buffalo. The ever so popular Buffalo chicken dip; Cabot’s Hot Buffalo Wing Cheddar; Stovetop Buffalo Chicken Shells & Cheese; and last but certainly not least in my heart, the buffalo chicken sandwich. Bet you thought it would be wings…nope. Not my thing. Something about eating meat off the bone and not to mention how messy it gets ya. Call me prissy. Whatever, I’ll wear it proud.
Enter the Buffalo Chicken Salad! A crunchy, vibrant salad filled with fiery chicken, smoky bacon and crispy peppers. Well doesn’t that just sound like a normal salad? No; certainly not my internet friend. I became fascinated with Tieghan’s buffalo oven fried goat cheese. Like whaaaa?! This girl has got it goin on. Her recipes are drool worthy and I absolutely adore her.
So when I saw this recipe I knew I had to take a stab at them. After adding my own spin to these little gems, they are the perfect whirl to this salad taking your lunch from ordinary to extraordinary. They are oh so salty, creamy and not to mention the beautiful golden hue they add to the top of salad. Can’t contain myself.
Now, whip up this salad. Devour and pour yourself a little cocktail for throwing a curveball to your taste buds. Trust me…they will thank you.
