  2. In a skillet, add in some oil and the chicken. Let it cook through for about 6-7 minutes as you keep turning it.
  3. Once cooked, take it out, set it to cool then slice it.
  4. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, add water enough to fill half the saucepan. Boil it on medium high heat.
  5. Once boiling hot, add in the eggs and boil them for exactly 8 minutes. This will make the eggs perfectly hard boiled.
  6. After the eggs are done, take them out and put them in a cold water bath/ ice bath. This helps stop the cooking process and makes it easier to peel them.
  7. Once out, slice into quarters.
  8. Slice the cherry tomatoes into halves.
  9. For the avocado, once sliced open, place it on a chopping board and gently slice into bite size pieces.
  10. Arrange the lettuce on a platter. Then arrange the remaining ingredients ( cherry tomatoes, chicken, eggs, onion, avocado) in rows over the salad .
  11. Transfer salad dressing ingredients into a jar, shake well and drizzle over the salad before serving.
