Today's recipe is for a romaine lettuce salad with Cajun spice rub chicken with a combination of peppers, onions and celery known as "the trinity."
Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Cajun spice rub
This recipe requires a large cast iron skillet and the chicken breast meat should be on the thinner side.
Cut the peppers, celery and onion into bite-size pieces and then coat the chicken breasts with the Cajun spice rub on both sides.
Add a little splash of vegetable oil to the skillet on medium-high to high heat and sear the chicken on both sides until it is just cooked through. One can add a little more oil to the pan after flipping the chicken, if it is needed. Once it is cooked through, take the chicken out of the pan and place it on a clean plate.
Turn the heat down on the pan a little bit, add a little more oil, add the onion, pepper and celery and cook those to soften a bit.
Next, add a good handful of chopped romaine, let it wilt down a bit and then add a little olive oil and the juice of half a lemon and toss to coat.
Divide the salad onto individual plates with a sliced chicken breast right over the top.
