Chef’s Tips:

  1. This salad has the delightful contrast of hot and cold. Cold and crisp spinach leaves are topped with roasted chicken and tomatoes for a fun mix of temperatures.
  2. We use chicken thighs but you can also use chicken breasts. Be sure to slice them before plating your salads.
  3. The chicken is done when the thickest part of the thigh reaches 165 degrees.
  4. Fresh herbs and ground black pepper can help the flavor pop even more!
