Don't let the word butterflied throw you. Using the thin-sliced chicken breasts is the reason this bistro-style salad is so quick to make.

    Loved it! I didn't butterfly the chicken. I grilled them and used turkey bacon that I microwaved to cook. Used green pepper instead of jalapeno. I use spinach on my salads to be healthier. Even my 4 yr old liked it.

    This is so good my husband went for seconds. It makes a lot. I followed the recipe except for the amount of chicken. I made this for my husband and I so i only used 2 chicken breasts and cut them into bite size pieces.
