Spicy Asian Cobb Salad
Serves 4.
Inspired by a picture on Pinterest :)
6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, rinsed and patted dry
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup sriracha sauce, or to taste
Salt and pepper
12 pineapple rings, fresh would be best but I used canned and patted dry here, in a pinch
8 cups, washed, chopped, lettuce of your choice
1 pint cherry tomatoes, rinsed, dried, and cut in halves
4 small, ripe avocados, peeled and sliced
12 ounce bag of frozen then steamed edamame
1/4 red onion, sliced thinly

Marinate the chicken thighs in the canola oil, sriracha, and a healthy pinch of salt and pepper, for about an hour and up to 8 hours.
Preheat your grill to medium-high.
Grill thighs until cooked through, about 4-5 minutes per side.  Remove to rest.
Grill pineapple slices, until sizzling and slightly charred, about 2 minutes per side.  Set aside.
Divide the lettuce onto 4 plates.
Slice the chicken into thin slices and divide evenly onto lettuce.
Add 3 slices of grilled pineapple, a small handful of the halved cherry tomatoes, 1 sliced avocado, and 3 ounces (1/4 of the bag) of steamed edamame to each plate.
Sprinkle with a bit of red onion and serve with your favorite Asian-inspired salad dressing.
