I don't know about you, but I love an eating Southwest Chicken Salads at restaurants.
Well at least those who make it GOOD!
It's quite a simple task you know.
And when you make yourself, you can feed you're whole family for the price of 1 1/2 that you'd buy at a restaurant.
So lets gets started on this super easy recipe!
You will need:
One pound skinless chicken breast
One large bell pepper
2 stalks of green onions
3 roma tomatoes
1 head of lettuce
1 can of black beans (15 oz)
1 can of yellow corn (15oz)
3 corn tortillas
1 large avocado (optional)
Dressing of your choice
Season your chicken at least one hour before hand.
I like to season mine with fajita seasoning.
Then slice breast into 2 inch wide strips.
In a skillet add a dash of olive oil and begin cooking your chicken on medium.
Use preferably freshly made corn tortillas.
(Mine look like white because they are white corn tortillas)
Cut 2 tortillas into small strips and
add a dash of salt.
Bake strips at 400 degrees. Bake for 8 minutes or until they start to slightly brown.
Cut your veggies, while your chicken
After your chicken is fully cooked, let cool and then cut into bite size, and add to the salad along with the black beans, corn and tortillas strips.
Now all you have to do is decide which dressing to add.
I love mine with either ranch, or...
my homemade cilantro dressing.
Thanks so much for tuning in!
Until Next Time...
