 DIRECTIONS

For the chicken:
  1. Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat.
  2. Sprinkle one side of the chicken breast with steak seasoning, rosemary, and a little salt and pepper. When the oil is warm, place chicken seasoned side down in the skillet. Sprinkle the unseasoned side with remaining steak seasoning, rosemary, and a little salt and pepper.
  3. Cook 6-8 minutes per side, or until chicken is completely cooked through and no pink remains. Let rest 2-3 minutes, before slicing.
To assemble the salad:
  1. Pile greens on individual plates (or in a big serving bowl). Sprinkle over bacon, sliced tomatoes, avocado slices and cooked chicken on top. Drizzle with desired dressing and enjoy!
For honey mustard dressing:
  1. In a small jar or bowl, whisk together honey, mustard, and mayonnaise/vegannaise until completely smooth. Stir in salt, pepper, and dill. Taste and add more seasoning or herbs as desired
