  • 2 Chicken Breasts
  • 4 cups Lettuce
  • 1 small Fresh Tomato, Diced
  • 1 cup Canned Black Beans, Rinsed
  • 1 cup Corn Kernels
  • 1 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 1/2 cup Tortilla Chips
  • 1 Avocado, Sliced
For the Cilantro Ranch Dressing:
  • 1/2 cup Mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup Sour Cream
  • 1/2 cup Milk
  • 1/4 packed cup Fresh Cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Parsley
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Dill
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon Onion Powder

Directions

  1. Mix together chili powder, salt, cumin, oregano, garlic powder, and onion powder in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a medium size skillet over medium high heat for about 2-3 minutes, until the oil is hot. Gently place the chicken breasts in the heated oil and sprinkle about a teaspoon of the taco seasoning onto the top of each chicken breast.
  3. Cook the chicken for about 6 minutes then turn over to cook the other side. Sprinkle the other side of the chicken breast with another teaspoon of the taco seasoning. Allow the chicken to cook for 6 minutes on the other side. Once the chicken is fully cooked, no longer pink on the inside, remove from the skillet and let sit on a plate or cutting board for a couple of minutes before slicing.
  4. Meanwhile prepare the salad by chopping up the green lettuce and layering into a large salad bowl. Top with the diced tomato, shredded cheese, black beans, corn, tortilla chips, avocado, and sliced chicken.
  5. Prepare the cilantro ranch salad dressing by adding all of the ingredients to a blender or food processor and blending until smooth and creamy.
  6. Pour dressing over the salad. Toss to mix. Serve immediately and enjoy!
