Turn chicken fajitas into a salad by spooning the mixture of spicy chicken, bell pepper and onions over lettuce and topping with beans, tomato, cheese and olives. Serve with the creamy lime and cilantro dressing and flour tortilla wedges or baked tortilla chips.
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 pound skinned, boned chicken breast, cut into thin strips
6 cups shredded romaine lettuce
1 1/3 cups thinly sliced green bell pepper rings
1 cup sliced red onion, separated into rings
1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded reduced-fat Monterey Jack cheese
Combine first 6 ingredients in a medium bowl. Add chicken; toss to coat. Place a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat until hot. Add chicken mixture; sauté 8 minutes or until chicken is done. Set aside.
Divide lettuce and next 6 ingredients (lettuce through tomato) among 4 bowls; top with chicken mixture. Serve with Creamy Cilantro-Lime Sauce.
This was a delicious, filling salad and the dressing complimented it well. I added garlic powder to the chicken seasoning and diced my peppers, onions and tomatoes a little smaller than directed, but other than that, I followed recipe as written.
