2 boneless, skinless free-range chicken breasts

¼ cup chopped red onion, divided
Directions Preparing:10 minCooking:30 min
Step 1Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add the chicken breasts to the water, reduce the heat to low, and simmer the breasts until their internal temperature reaches 180°F, about 30 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a bowl and let it cool for about 10 minutes.
Step 2Meanwhile, crisp the bacon strips in a skillet over medium heat, about 3 minutes per side. Drain the bacon on a paper towel.
Step 3Use a fork to shred the chicken. Toss it with the buffalo sauce.
Step 4Divide the lettuce between two bowls. Top each with half of the pulled chicken, then half of the blue cheese dressing, blue cheese crumbles, and chopped red onion. Crumble the bacon over the salads and serve.
