  3. Reserve 1 tbsp of bacon grease in pan and add chicken and cook 4-6 minutes over medium heat, or until no longer pink, remove from heat and cool slightly in refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  4. In a 3 quart salad bowl, layer lettuce, chicken, bacon, bell pepper, and tomatoes and top with dressing.
  5. Can be served immediately or refrigerated up to 24 hours.
