Do you facebook?  I have to admit I did until this.  But, I digress, I played a few of the games while sitting on hold or watching TV late at night.  One of the things that came to mind on CAFEWORLD was, “are these real recipes?”  I did find a recipe for VOODOO CHICKEN SALAD, but it was nothing like I expected so I am making my own!

Romaine Lettuce, torn and washed
1 large Heirloom tomato, diced
1 small red onion, sliced thin
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite sized pieces 

2 cups Flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
hidden valley ranch dressing mix (DRY) OR Good Seasons Italian dressing mix (DRY)

1 teaspoon lime juice
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/2 cup crumbled Bleu Cheese
  • I prepare the chicken breasts the same as you would HOT WINGS
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Wash and dry the chicken pieces.
  • Mix together the flour and seasonings in a plastic ziploc bag. Using a ziploc bag makes it easy to throw away the whole mess after dredging all the chicken pieces and it helps you coat every possible spot of the chicken pieces.
  • Add chicken a few pieces at a time and coat them well. Set chicken pieces aside.
  • While you’re doing this, have the butter melting in the pan. Start with 4 tablespoons and add as necessary, but make sure you don’t run out dry.
  • Once all the chicken has been dredged start frying. After you have the pan full pepper the pieces again. Don’t turn the chicken until you can see blood. You only need to turn the chicken one time. Brown evenly and then set aside on paper towels until all pieces have been fried.
  • As the last batch is frying melt 4 tablespoons of butter in a flat bowl. To that add 1/2 cup of Frank’s hot sauce.  Whisk them together well.
  • Spray a cookie sheet with PURE.
  • Dip each piece of chicken into the hot sauce mixture and put on cookie sheet.
  • After you’re all done and if you have hot sauce & butter mixture left, pour a little over the top of each wing.
  • Bake for 30 minutes.
  • Toss the torn lettuce, onion and tomatoes with the lemon and lime juice.
  • Add cooled chicken pieces and bleu cheese crumbles.
  • Pour on the desired amount of dressing and toss well.
  • Enjoy!

LOL I thought about that when I named it, but just couldn’t make myself be the butt of those jokes LOL. I guess we could use thigh meat and called it HOT LEGS salad as a tribute to Rod Stewart?


Since you used breasts instead of wings shouldn’t we call this “hot breasts” salad?

Wait….never mind, I can just imagine the google visits we would get on that one.


I love romaine lettuce and I had a chuckle ’bout that cafeworld … I play that game sometimes too on facebook… some of those recipes over there on that game scare me LOL.
