Ingredients
  

For the Chicken:

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • salt and pepper, to taste

For the Salad:

  • 1 head lettuce of choice, chopped
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 avocado sliced
  • 3 eggs, boiled to preference and sliced
  • 8 strips bacon, cooked crispy and diced

For the Ranch Dressing:

  • 1 cup yogurt
  • 1/3 cup laban or milk
  • 1 tbsp white vinegar
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley, minced
  • 2 tsp dill, minced optional
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • salt, to taste

Instructions
 

  • To prepare the chicken, place chicken breasts on a oiled baking sheet. Salt and pepper both sides of the chicken, and bake at 200 C (400F) for 20-25 minutes or until cooked through.
  • Let chicken cool, then slice into strips and set aside.
  • To make the dressing, whisk together all the dressing ingredients and set aside.
  • In a large serving bowl or platter, combine all the salad ingredients (lettuce, tomatoes, avocado, eggs, and bacon). Top with the sliced chicken and drizzle with dressing. 
  • Serve with extra dressing on the side and enjoy!

Notes

Dressing adapted from tasty.com
To make the perfect medium boiled eggs, place eggs in a saucepan that you fill with cool tap water until water comes an inch above eggs. Add a pinch of baking soda,  bring to a boil, then cover and turn off the heat. Keep the eggs in the hot water for 6 minutes for egg yolk doneness like that pictured, or longer and shorter to your taste. Immediately plunge eggs into a bowl of ice cold water and once cool, peel.
The baking soda helps make peeling easier, and so does submerging the eggs in ice water once cooking time is over.
