Do you suffer from chicken boredom? I’m about to change that with this super flavorful, incredibly easy dish that I can only describe as my latest chicken flavor bomb! It’s a stuffed chicken, but not in the way you usually prepare it. This method makes it easier to stuff and much easier to eat! Tucked into each slit of chicken is prosciutto and a slice of your favorite cheese along with garlicky, buttery sage leaves. Then, that garlic butter gets spooned right over the top before it goes into the oven. It really is sensation, especially with my Momma’s famous Spinach salad! Chicken boredom be gone forever!

After the sweets and holiday party foods, a nice, hearty and healthful salad sounds pretty inviting. If you love main dish salads, this is one to try! The tasty fixins’ like chopped crispy bacon, hard boiled eggs and candied pecans all add to this hearty plateful of goodness, but I think it’s the dressing that really makes the meal! The sweet and tangy mixture in this dressing is a family favorite and one that we’ve used on spinach salads for years! I’ve changed things up a bit for this bountiful meal. I’ve added spring mix to the spinach greens, and I’ve accompanied the greens with a beautifully pan-grilled Flat Iron steak, cooked medium rare and sliced into strips. If you prefer grilled chicken on the side, it will be just as delicious! There is one important tip in tossing this salad. Add the dressing at the very last minute, right before you’re ready to serve it up. Also, instead of pouring the dressing directly over the greens, spoon the dressing along the inside of the bowl and let the dressing ooze down the sides. Then, give it a gentle toss. This is to keep the greens from getting soggy. If you decide that you don’t want to make this salad a main dish, it makes a savory side salad for just about any entrée. Make up a double or even triple batch of this liquid gold dressing, refrigerate, and then you’ll have it on hand for the next couple of few weeks!
