Ingredients

  • For the Chicken

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1⁄2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1⁄2 tsp onion powder

  • For the salad
  • 5 cups leaf lettuce torn
  • 1⁄2 cucumber sliced

Instructions

  • Mix together the olive oil, apple cider vinegar, chilli powder, garlic powder, onion powder and then slather it on the chicken breasts.
  • Season both sides of the breasts with salt and pepper before placing them into a skillet heated over medium heat.
  • Allow the chicken to cook for 8-10 minutes on the first side without disturbing before flipping them over and cooking the second side. Cook the chicken for another 8-10 minutes then remove the breasts from the pan and set aside to rest and cool.

  • Slice the chicken breasts then add to the salad bowl.
  • Drizzle with ranch dressing and serve.
