Ingredients

Roast Chicken Apple Salad with Yogurt Blue Cheese Dressing

  • 2 cups spinach fresh
  • 3 apples Granny Smith, Hidden Rose ("pink"), Green Dragon
  • roast chicken
  • yogurt blue cheese dressing
  • ¼ cup crumbled blue cheese salad garnish

Easy Roast Chicken

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • sea salt
  • fresh cracked pepper
  • 2 teaspoon olive oil

Yogurt Blue Cheese Dressing

  • ½ cup crumbled blue cheese
  • ½ cup Greek yogurt
  • ½ lemon juiced
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon fresh cracked pepper

Instructions

Make The Roast Chicken

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. 
  • On a parchment lined sheet pan, lightly spray (or rub) olive oil on both sides of the chicken breast. Then sprinkle sea salt and cracked pepper on both sides.
  • Roast the chicken at 25 minutes at 425 degrees, flip them over and roast for another 25 minutes for a total of 50 minutes.
  • Roast the chicken breasts 50 minutes, until they get some brown color on them, and are cooked all the way through and not pink, 165 internal temperature. 
  • Cool the chicken (keep refrigerated) and slice into bite-size sliced pieces for the salad. 

Make Yogurt Blue Cheese Dressing

  • Add the crumbled blue cheese, yogurt, lemon juice, and sea salt into a Mason jar. Close the lid tightly, shake well for 1 minute. Open and add 2 more tablespoons crumbled blue cheese to make it chunkier. Add water to thin if desired. 

Arrange The Salad

  • Place a good layer of fresh spinach leaves on each plate, layer the roast chicken, sliced apples, and top with crumbled blue cheese. Spoon on the yogurt blue cheese dressing. And sprinkle on more crumbled blue cheese if you wish!
