Ingredients:

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1 lb. bacon

2. Preheat a charcoal or gas grill to medium high heat.
3. Grill chicken breasts for approximately 15 minutes on each side, or until meat is cooked through and is no longer pink inside. Remove from heat, cool and slice into strips.
4. Cook 1lb. of bacon and when finished crumble up.
5. In a large bowl, toss together the lettuce, tomato, onion, pepper, avocado, cheese, bacon, dressing and chicken until evenly coated. Serve immediately.
