I want to share some news about one of my favorite eateries, The Habit Burger Grill. I love their burgers and Grilled Chicken salad, but recently, I had a chance to try their Golden Chicken Salad. This meal starts with a buttermilk battered, sliced chicken breast, served atop fresh garden greens, with feta cheese, diced tomatoes, crumbled bacon, red onions, carrots and cilantro, and is then tossed in a house-made Southwest-inspired cilantro lime ranch dressing. All I can say is YUM!
The chicken is hand-dipped into house-made seasoned flour and buttermilk, and then fried for a crunchy and juicy meal. This salad was really great because it had everything I love in a salad, good taste, fresh vegetables and it needs to be filling. This one covers all of the above, and that Cilantro Ranch Dressing was the bomb.
Apparently, I am not the only one who thinks so. According to Adam Baird, executive chef at The Habit Burger Grill, “The response for our Golden Chicken by our fans has been overwhelmingly positive, and we are excited to extend the menu line for a limited time to include a delicious salad. The Golden Chicken Salad is The Habit’s tasty answer to the ever-growing popularity of fried chicken.”
