Hot Chicken Salad

By

While trying to eat low-carb, we have had many incarnations of chicken, around our house, but this is by far, one of the best and if you don't like the super hot stuff, no worries, the sauce can be adjusted, depending on your personal love of "hot".

Preparation

Step 1

Cut chicken into smallish pieces and pan fry, with a little bit of oil. Set aside.

For the sauce...

Add the chicken broth to a small saucepan and simmer, with garlic, pepper pulp, brown sugar, chili powder and cumin. Reduce by at least half. Add the butter, then simmer for about ten more minutes, making a thickish glaze.


Pour sauce over chicken and toss well. Let it rest for a few minutes, so the chicken will soak up the flavors.

Prepare salad in a bowl, then add chicken and blue cheese crumbles, top with your choice of dressing and garnish with diced pickles.
