#ad Tyson Gluten-Free Chicken Southwestern Cobb Salad Recipe #CookItGF

The past few months have been an absolute blur. This is my busy time of year at work and mix that with a side of running, races, wedding planning and blogging - I have no time for myself. My favorite time of day is 5:30, when I pour myself a glass of wine and cook a fantastic dinner. I prefer to spend one hour plus in the kitchen, which is how I relieve stress. Not so much these days. I have found myself making quick fix recipes. I was home last weekend visiting my Mom and we saw an in-store demonstration at the Daytona Beach Sam's Club for Tyson Gluten-Free Chicken Breast Fillets - a pre-grilled fully cooked boneless skinless breast. I was a bit skeptical at first and left highly impressed, with a bag in hand.

My brother was diagnosed with Lyme disease a few years ago and one of his many Doctors instructed him to go on a Gluten Free diet during his treatment. My family had to find many learn about cooking Gluten Free options in the house. One of my favorite Gluten-Free recipes is a take on the cobb salad. When I make salads at home, I leave out bacon, cheese and other items which add on calories; you seriously do not miss those items. This salad is so delicious and easy to make. Using Tyson Grilled and Ready Gluten-Free Chicken breasts made it even easier. In less than 20 minutes, I had this delicious salad.
To make this salad you need the following:
Ingredients
  • Tyson Grilled & Ready Chicken Breast Fillets, Gluten-Free
  • Greens of choice - I used arugula
  • Avocado 
  • Black Beans
  • Roasted Cherry Tomatoes, cut in half (*see notes below) 
  • Roasted Corn on the Cob (*see notes below)
  • Choice of a Gluten-Free dressing, I used Annie's Naturals Chile Lime Vinaigrette 
  • Cilantro for garnish
I decided to warm my chicken up in the oven vs. microwaving it. The conventional oven instructions are at 375 for 18 minutes. *I decided to roast my corn and tomatoes at the same time while my chicken was heating up.
Directions
Pre-Heat oven to 375
  • Pull back the corn husk and remove the silk, remove the outer layers and pull back up to cover. Place directly on the oven rack for 30 minutes. 
  • When there is 20 minutes left for the corn to cook, place two frozen Gluten-Free Tyson Grilled & Ready Chicken Breast Fillets in a pan and place in the oven alongside the cord
  • When there is 10 minutes left, place the tomatoes in the oven, I put them in the same pan as the chicken
  • Meanwhile, place the arugula on a dinner plate
  • Heat up your black beans and drain
  • Cut up your avocado
  • Once the chicken, tomatoes and corn has cooked, remove from oven
  • Dice the chicken in bite size pieces
  • Cut the corn from the cob
  • Lay everything in one layer along the bed of arugula
  • Garnish with cilantro
If you want to check out Tyson Gluten-Free Chicken for yourself, Sam's Club has three upcoming #CookitGF in-store demonstrations on 4/4, 4/5/14 and 5/4/14. Both my Mom and I were very impressed with this product and it made for an easy, quick and delicious lunch.
