Directions
Watch how to make this recipe.
  • For the salsa: Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Allow to marinate.

  • For the blue cheese sauce: In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, blue cheese, lemon juice, lemon zest, lime juice, garlic, and salt and pepper, to taste. Mix in the cilantro, chives, and parsley.

  • For the chicken: Place the hot sauce into a bowl. Dredge the chicken with the hot sauce. In a casserole dish, mix together the flour, salt, paprika, and pepper. Dredge the chicken in the flour mixture. Shake off any excess flour.

  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add olive oil to about 1/4-inch up the sides of the skillet. When the oil is hot (it will bubble around the handle of a wooden spoon), add the chicken to the skillet. After 4 minutes, turn the chicken over and cook until the chicken is browned and cooked through, about 4 more minutes.

  • Place the lettuce leaves on a platter and spoon the chicken into the lettuce. Top the chicken with 1 tablespoon of the blue cheese sauce and salsa. Serve immediately.
