  • 1/2 pound raw bacon, diced
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Juice from one fresh lemon

Directions

Preheat the grill. Season the chicken breast with olive oil and Essence. Place the chicken on the grill and cook for 4 minutes on each side. Remove from the grill and small dice the chicken. In a skillet, over medium heat, render the bacon until crispy, about 6 to 8 minutes.

In a mixing bowl, whisk the olive oil and lemon juice together. Whisk in 1/4 pound of the blue cheese, a handful at a time. Whisk well. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside. Using a knife, dice the avocado. Season with salt and pepper. Season the tomatoes with salt and pepper. Thinly slice the eggs and season with salt and pepper.

In a large bowl, toss the lettuce with the dressing. Season with salt and pepper. Mound the lettuce in the center of each plate. To garnish each salad, make a row of each; avocados, chicken, tomatoes, remaining blue cheese, bacon and eggs. Serve immediately.

Combine all ingredients thoroughly.
