Meal Prep Sunday: Grilled Buffalo Chicken Salad

The Beer:

20170305_114155Everyone knows that when you’re whipping up a fresh batch of grilled dead animals, the consumption of barley, hops, water and yeast is a must.  This week’s selection was a Virginia IPA called Hoptimization from Brother’s Craft Brewery.  Google says the Brewery is in Harrisonburg, VA, which to be honest is a pretty damn good drinking town.  When I was in high school local university JMU was known as quite the party school.  However, since I’m 26 and old now that’s not what I’m here for.  However, as a pretentious 26-year-old male, I feel my opinion on craft beer matters.  Shit running out of words.  Anyway, my main complaint with IPAs is they tend to be way over PA’d.  This had a mellow flavor despite its ridiculous 7 some odd percent in alcohol content.  I’d give it a 4 out of 6 beers.

The Game:

You should have some solid background noise but something you don’t particularly care about.  Tottenham vs Everton served this purpose and actually turned out great.  Just like my chicken.

The Meal:

Yes, I know this is dude food and it has the word salad in it.  Who wants a salad.  Well since it is one of three socially responsible ways to shove ranch in your mouth, I’d say they have a spot on SBDS.  Plus, this is a quick and easy way to get your veggies in that one time of week you feel obligated to.  Here’s what you’ll need:

4 Chicken Breasts20170305_114210

Spices (Depending how spicy you like it)

10 Ounces of Spring Mix and Spinach

1 Red Bell Pepper

1.5 Cups of Diced Red Onion

2 Carrots

A Bag of 4 Shredded Cheddar

Ranch

A Bottle of Buffalo Wing Sauce from Sweet “F***ING” Baby Rays

First things first.  Get you a lot of chicken breasts.  Not frozen.  Seriously not that hard.  And get a big f***ing Ziploc bag.  I put in the following but I also like my chicken spicy.  However, a good place to start is put the following in the bag:

Black Pepper20170305_115032

Salt

Red Pepper

Cilantro

Chili Powder

Garlic Powder

Chicken Breasts

Shake in bag and place in fridge for 10 minutes.  Wash and dice the Pepper and peel the carrots.  Turn grill on high.  Once its good and hot turn it down to about 75 percent.  Oh 20170305_125437and dudes learn your grill.  It’s about the manliest thing you can do.  Any way back to it.  Close the grill and leave for 10 minutes.  Leave your meat be guys.  If you touch it too much, the juices will come flowing out.  The last thing you want is for all your juices to leave your meat early.  Flip leave for 10 more minutes.  Flip the chicken twice more for 5 minutes on both sides.  Cut the chicken into small fragments.  Place the cut chicken in a bowl and pour the buffalo sauce on and close lid and shake vigorously.  K at this point it’s a f***ing salad.  Assemble and eat.  And enjoy its delicious and hard to screw up.20170305_130812
