We've been eating a lot of fried food while on the road, so tonight we wanted something fresh and healthy and NOT fried. I saw Pioneer Woman's new Chicken Taco Salad recipe and knew it would be perfect for dinner tonight. It turned out great and was very yummy! I will definitely be making this many more times!
I followed her recipe exactly, except for these few exceptions.
-I seasoned my chicken with chili powder, seasoned salt, and a little bit of onion powder. It's what I had on hand.
-I used canned corn instead of fresh. I just drained it, then browned it in the same skillet I used for the chicken.
-I majorly cut back on the cilantro. We are not huge fans of cilantro. I think next time I'll actually omit it completely.
-We omitted the avocado. Both of my boys scrunch their noses up at avocados, so I didn't bother.
-I assembled our salads on our individual plates instead of all together since I knew we couldn't eat it all at once and would have leftoveers. Soggy chips in the leftovers=gross. ;)
Try this salad! You won't be sorry!
