Crispy Chicken and Apple Salad

Posted by


This crispy chicken and apple salad is hearty, seasonal, and irresistibly delicious -- and it's exactly what you should make for dinner tonight! The recipe is simple; just coat boneless, skinless chicken breasts in flour, egg, and breadcrumbs (a.k.a., standard breading procedure), before quickly pan-frying them. While the chicken is cooking, make a perfect-for-fall salad of apples, red leaf lettuce, and cranberries. Toss everything with a tangy buttermilk dressing, and you're ready to eat. Enjoy!
