  • 1 package breaded chicken tenders about 12-16 tenders, 2 per person
  • 1 cup buffalo sauce
  • 1 head Iceberg lettuce chopped
  • 1 head Romaine lettuce chopped
  • 1/3 cup mild cheddar cheese
  • 1/3 cup Monterey or mozzarella cheese
  • 2-3 carrots shredded
  • 2-3 celery stalks chopped
  • 4-5 green onions finely sliced
  • Ranch or Blue Cheese Dressing


  • Cook chicken tenders according to package instructions. Allow to cool enough to handle.
  • Place buffalo sauce in a medium bowl. Toss and spin chicken tenders in sauce to fully coat. Remove tenders to original baking sheet. Set aside. Optional: Chop chicken tenders before or after coating in buffalo sauce for easier bite-sized pieces.
  • Combine lettuce, cheese, carrots, celery, and green onions in a large bowl, and toss to combine.
  • To serve, place a generous portion of the lettuce mixture onto each individual plate. Place buffalo chicken tenders on top, and drizzle the whole salad with ranch or blue cheese dressing.
