This pan-seared chicken is coated in our own blackening seasoning and cooked to juicy, savory perfection. We take it to a near-sinful level, serving it over a bed of spinach enrobed in a buttermilk dressing with freshly cracked black peppercorns. Bleu cheese and crispy carrot ribbons add softness and crunch for a lovely texture and mouthwateringly good salad.

    Make the Crispy Carrots

    Arrange the carrot ribbons in a single layer on prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Place a second baking sheet on top of carrots and bake until carrots begin to brown and crisp, about 15 minutes. If you don't have a second baking sheet, you can layer more foil and press a heavy casserole dish on top. Transfer carrots to a paper towel-lined plate.
