How to Make ~ My Southwestern Chicken Salad ~

Step-by-Step

  1. For chicken preparation

    Mix the spices in a small bowl. Set aside.

    In a large skillet over med - high heat, add 1 - 2 tbsp oil.

    Add chicken strips and cook until browning and no longer pink in center, turning to brown evenly. Add water and seasoning and cook for about 5 minutes - tossing to coat chicken evenly in seasoning.

    Cool and bag for future use unless using all now for salads. I usually use 1/2 breast per salad.
  2. For salad

    Plate lettuce, add corn, beans, cheese, onion, tomato, chicken strips, olives and tortilla crumbles. Salt & pepper if desired.
  3. Dressing - for 1 portion - in a small bowl, measure out 3 tablespoon ranch dressing and desired amount of taco seasoning. Mix and serve with salad.
  4. Enjoy!
