  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Hold romaine heart at root end and chop coarsely.
    Halve and peel onion. Slice halves into thin strips. Core tomato and cut into ½" dice. Pat chicken dry, and season with a pinch of pepper.

  2. 2

    Cook the Onion

    Place onion in a microwave-safe bowl and cover with a damp paper towel. Microwave until softened, 4-5 minutes. Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add ½ tsp. olive oil. Add onion and a pinch of salt to hot pan. Stir occasionally until onion is browned, 6-8 minutes. Remove from burner and transfer onion to a plate or bowl. Let cool, at least 5 minutes. While onion cooks, cook chicken.

  3. 3

    Cook the Chicken

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add ½ tsp. olive oil. Add chicken to hot pan and cook undisturbed until lightly charred, 3-5 minutes. Then stir occasionally until browned all over and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 3-5 minutes. Remove from burner and stir in BBQ sauce. Transfer chicken to a plate. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

  4. 4

    Make the Salad
