How To Make Chicken Fajita Salad
In this Mexican-inspired chicken fajita salad, tender chicken is mixed with fajita seasoning and combined with fresh salad greens for a tasty side dish.
Place chicken breasts on a plate and season both sides with 2 teaspoons of fajita seasoning.
Over medium heat, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil. Add seasoned chicken breast and cook for 18 to 20 minutes or until chicken reaches 165 degrees F. Then remove and let rest on a plate.
In the same skillet, add the remaining olive oil, green and red bell peppers, yellow onion, and remaining fajita seasoning. Cook until soft but not falling apart.
In 2 large salad bowls add an equal amount of chopped romaine lettuce.
Slice the chicken and add 1 sliced breast to each salad along with half the pepper and onion mixture and avocado.
Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette:
Add all ingredients to a small mixing bowl and whisk to combine.
Top salad with cilantro-lime vinaigrette and toss to combine.
Serve and enjoy.
