Paleo Chicken BLT Salad

Paleo chicken BLT salad. Finally, a salad that really fills you up!

Looking for a last-minute Paleo-friendly dinner idea that takes less than 10 minutes to throw together? I’ve got you covered!

This chicken, bacon, lettuce, and tomato salad is not for the dainty.

You see that picture of the salad? I ate it all. I don’t like to be left hungry after eating a salad. So I kept adding more ingredients until I thought it would be enough to make me comfortably full. I’m a bottomless pit sometimes.

Time Savers

There is a time and a place for complicated, labor-intensive recipes. A weekday dinner is not one of them. Here are some ways to save time when putting this salad together:

  • Buy pre-cooked bacon from the grocery store salad bar
  • Buy a rotisserie chicken or the ready-made, seasoned chicken breasts at Trader Joe’s
  • Buy organic bagged romaine lettuce
