Chicken Parmesan Salad is a new favorite in our house. It combines all of the favorite flavors of chicken parmesan, but with fresher and lighter ingredients!
The chicken is breaded in plantain chips, which gives it a nice crispy crust. If you don’t have plantain chips on hand, you can also use gluten-free breadcrumbs, sourdough breadcrumbs or any other kind of breading you prefer.
Sun-dried tomato pesto is the foundation for the salad dressing and it gives the salad a bright tomato flavor. You can also use the pesto on top of pizza, drizzled over vegetables, on grilled meats or fish, in a creamy dip, or to add some extra flavor to soups and stews.
Here are some fun variations for the chicken parmesan salad:
Serve it over romaine lettuce for some extra crunch.
Switch out the sun-dried tomato pesto for basil pesto.
Add some chopped red bell pepper or black olives to the salad.
