Notes

Juicy, warm chicken breasts baked in a crunchy pecan and garlic flavored coating sit on a bed of crisp romaine lettuce.

Dried cranberries and mandarin oranges add a sweetness that is balanced by crumbled blue

cheese.

Ranch dressing ties the dish together to make a wonderfully

light, filling salad.
