Mason Jar Snack Packs

Mason Jar Snack Packs

Ingredient

  • 2 medium-sized chicken breasts (I also like to use rotisserie chicken when in a pinch!)
  • salt and pepper
  • olive oil
  • 1/4 cup garlic pesto marinade
  • 1 small red bell pepper, cubed
  • 2 Persian cucumbers, cubed
  • 10 to 15 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 avocado, cubed
  • 1/2 shallot, sliced
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup mango chipotle yogurt dressing (I use the Bolthouse brand)
  • 10 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  • Parmesan cheese crisps, optional

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the chicken first. Preheat the oven to 350F and preheat a medium frying pan over medium heat. Season the chicken generously with salt and pepper, then brown all over. Pour the marinade into the pan and finish cooking the chicken in the oven, about 12 to 15 minutes depending on the thickness. Allow the chicken to rest for 5 minutes, then cube into smaller pieces.
  2. To assemble the salad, pour the salad dressing into the bottom of the jar, then top with cucumbers, avocado, tomatoes, pepper, shallots and feta cheese. Add the cubed chicken, then pack the rest of the jar full of romaine lettuce.
  3. When serving, top the salad with cheese crisps or croutons.
