This salad is simple, healthy and perfect for a quick weeknight meal!


  • 2 boneless chicken breasts or 4 boneless chicken thighs (organic is preferred, but just good’ole regular chicken will work)
  • 1 Tablespoon (plus additional) of ghee (if you don’t have ghee, I have used butter before and it works fairly well. It just smokes at a lower temp than ghee so be careful you don’t burn it)
  • Himalayan pink salt
  • Turmeric
  • 2 packed cups of living butter lettuce (but any type of lettuce you have will work)
  • Your favorite Caesar salad dressing (dairy-free or otherwise) – for Whole30 I highly recommend this dressing
  • Shaved parmesan cheese (optional – omit if Whole30/Paleo/Dairy-Free)
  • 1 hard boiled egg, halved


  1. Take cast iron skillet and place ghee in the middle of it.
  2. Turn heat to medium and let ghee melt.
  3. Open up your chicken and sprinkle pink salt and turmeric on top so that each piece has a nice little covering.
  4. Flip chicken over into the pan and sprinkle pink salt and turmeric on the other side.
  5. Cover and let sit for approximately 6 minutes.
  6. Open and flip over – add additional ghee if pan looks dry.
  7. Cover and cook for an additional 6 minutes or until fully cooked (*chicken thighs may need less time).
  8. Prep your bowl with your lettuce and parmesan cheese (if using).
  9. Once chicken is done, slice and place on top of lettuce.
  10. Garnish with hard boiled egg and use as much or as little dressing as you choose
  11. Sprinkle pink salt over the top.
  12. Eat and enjoy immediately.
