Chicken – For this recipe, you’ll need one pound of cubed chicken breasts. Season the chicken with kosher salt and cracked black pepper. Dust the seasoned chicken with cornstarch until lightly coated.

Wedge – You’ll need one small head of iceberg lettuce for this recipe. Wash the lettuce and cut the head of iceberg in half.

Vegetables – You’ll need to core and dice the English cucumber, quarter the cherry tomatoes, dice the red onion, and chop the banana rings. Add these vegetables to a mixing bowl and toss until well combined.

Cheese – For this recipe, you’ll need freshly grated medium cheddar cheese. You can use whatever cheese you enjoy most, but freshly grated cheese takes this recipe to the next level.

Dressing – You can use whatever dressing you enjoy most. However, I made a simple yogurt dressing with fresh herbs and seasonings.
