Buffalo Chicken Salad

Buffalo wings are one of my favorite things to eat, but they are
terrible for you! I found the idea for this recipe in the Best 30
Minute Recipes cookbook from America's Test Kitchen, but they use blue
cheese dressing and fried chicken strips. Instead, I used chicken
breasts and light ranch dressing. It is so delicious and very simple
to make!

Buffalo Chicken Salad
(2 servings)
4 c salad greens
2 carrots, chopped
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/4 c Frank's Original Hot Sauce
1 1/2 t brown sugar
1 t cider vinegar
1/2 T butter
4 T ranch dressing

Spread the lettuce out between 2 plates, and sprinkle half the carrots
over each.

Cut the chicken into 1/2-inch pieces and cook in a skillet sprayed
with nonstick spray until it is no longer pink. Mix in all of the
remaining ingredients except the ranch dressing, and stir until the
sauce is combined and evenly coats the chicken.

Scatter half the chicken on top of each salad, and top with 2 T of
Ranch dressing. Mmmmm!
