Chicken BLT Salad

The original recipe was from Cooking Light, but I changed a few things

Yield: Serves 6
1 cup fat free buttermilk, divided
1 large egg white, lightly beaten
3/4 cup panko bread crumbs
4 - 6 oz each skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 tsp black pepper, divided
1/4 tsp kosher salt, divided
3 tbsp canola oil
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 tbsp chopped fresh dill
1 tbsp chopped fresh chives
2 tsp white vinegar
1 1/2 tsp minced garlic
1 medium head iceberg lettuce, cored and cut into 6 wedges
2 cups chopped tomatoes
1/2 cup shredded cheddar
3 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Combine 1/2 cup buttermilk and egg white in a shallow dish. Place panko in a shallow dish. Dip chicken in egg white mixture; dredge in panko. Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon pepper and 1/8 teaspoon salt.
Heat an ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add oil and swirl to coat. Add chicken. Cook 4 minutes then turn over. Bake at 425degrees for 14 minutes or till done. Let chicken stand 10 minutes then slice crosswise. Combine 1/2 cup buttermilk, 3/4 teaspoon pepper, mayonnaise, dill, chives, and vinegar. Place garlic on a cutting board; sprinkle with 1/8 teaspoon salt. Chop till a paste forms, scraping with the flat side of knife to mash. Add garlic to dressing. Place 1 lettuce wedge on each of 6 plates. Top each serving with chicken, 1/3 cup tomato, and 2 1/2 tablespoons dressing. Sprinkle with cheese and crumbled bacon.

When I was young we used to go "skinny dipping"; now we just "chunky dunk"

“The value of doing something does not lie in the ease or difficulty, the probability or improbability of its achievement, but in the vision, the plan, the determination and the perseverance, the effort and the struggle which go into the project. Life is enriched by aspiration and effort, rather than by acquisition and accumulation.”
