Southwestern Chicken Salad with Jalapeño Dressing
(Adapted from Closet Cooking)
4 – 6 oz chicken breasts
2 TBSP taco seasoning mix (I use my own – recipe below)
Salt and pepper to taste
6 cups romaine lettuce
1-2 tomatoes, diced
1-2 avocados diced
1 cup corn, grilled and cut off the cob
1 cup black beans, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup green onions, chopped
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup crumbled tortilla chips
4 strips of bacon, cooked and crumbled
Season the chicken with the taco seasoning, and grill over medium-high heat until cooked, ~ 4-6 minutes per side, set aside, let cool and slice.
Grill the corn alongside the chicken ~ 10 minutes.
Then cut the corn off the cob before assembling the salad.
Put your salad ingredients into bowls.
Drizzle the top with Jalapeño Dressing (see below).
