    One thing I love about this salad is how much veggies is packed into it. It is very filling and also super healthy. I usually end up doing a no-carb cleanse once or twice a year, and this is always my go-to salad when I am up to such craziness. It’s always rotated into the menu once or twice a month as well. My whole family loves it. My kids eat everything separate of course. ;)

    The fresh avocado, lime and cilantro really make this salad, so don’t skip out on those. The Old El Paso fajita seasoning also gives the chicken the perfect flavor! And the dressing couldn’t be any easier with the green salsa. I make this salad with a cilantro lime ranch dressing when I have extra time and that tastes amazing as well. Adding tortilla strips adds a great crunch to the salad as well if you have those on hand.

    Ingredients

    • 4 chicken breasts pounded and trimmed
    • 2 to 3 Tablespoons Fajita or taco seasoning
    • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 Tablespoon butter
    • 1 (4 ounces) 4-ounce can chopped green chiles
    • 1 of each: red yellow, orange bell pepper, sliced
    • 1 small purple onion sliced thin
    • Lettuce about 8 to 10 cups
    • 2 tomatoes diced
    • 1 avocado sliced
    • Fresh cilantro
    • Green salsa
    • 2 limes cut into wedges

    Instructions

    • Place the chicken on a plate and pat dry with a paper towel. Rub the seasoning on both sides of the chicken.
    • Place 1 tablespoon oil and butter into a frying pan over medium heat. Once it has warmed up, place the chicken into the pan and allow to cook for 4 minutes on each side, or until the center is cooked through and the edges are golden. Remove chicken from the pan and allow to cool slightly. Then cut chicken into strips.
    • Place another tablespoon oil into the same pan. Then cook the peppers, onions and green chiles for 3 to 5 minutes, or until tender.
    • Next place your lettuce into a bowl and then layer with the chicken, bell pepper mixture, avocados, tomatoes, cilantro and limes. Then just before serving squeeze the lime over the top and drizzle the green salsa on top.
