Southwestern chicken salad is one of the tastiest dishes you can ever eat. The best thing about this salad is that it is incredibly easy to prepare as well. So, whenever you feel like having a quick bite or two, you can make this salad all by yourself and enjoy it. Now let me tell you how to prepare chicken salad the Southwestern way.
As for as the recipe Southwest chicken salad is pretty simple. It takes around 30 to 40 minutes to prepare. Let us now take a look at the ingredients needed for the salad.
- ¼ cup oil
- ¼ cup water
- ¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
- one ounce of taco seasoning
- 2 cups of torn lettuce
- one cup salsa
- ½ cup white corn
- ½ cup nonfat sour cream
- 1 cup of shredded low fat cheddar cheese
- ¼ cup black olives
- ½ cup black beans
- ½ cup chopped green onions
- one cup of chopped tomatoes
- 1½ lbs of boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
First what you need to do is simple. Mix taco seasoning, oil, lemon juice, and water in a large glass bowl. Add the chicken breasts to this mixture. Marinate well for around 20 minutes. Then, take the chicken breasts out and grill or broil well. You can take up to ten minutes per side. If you are not into such timetables, just forget about the timeframe and grill the chicken breasts until they are thoroughly cooked. Then, take out your salad plates, place the lettuce properly, add the tomatoes, onions, black olives, black beans, cheese, and sour cream to the chicken slices and serve. To spice things up, you can also add some chili powder, picante sauce, and cumin to the dressing.
Let me tell you another recipe Southwestern chicken salad. In this method, you need to cook the chicken thoroughly first, chop it into pieces, and keep it separate. Next, take a glass bowl and mix sour cream, picante sauce, cumin, and chili powder. Take another bowl and mix the cooked chicken pieces with chopped tomatoes, green onions, black olives, cheddar cheese, and other ingredients. Now, mix the salad with the dressing and serve.
Southwestern chicken salad is pretty easy to prepare, don’t you think? Now, let me tell you what goes fine with this wonderful dish. A glass of wine would be perfect with this salad. Some of the best combinations include chicken salad with Chenin Blanc, Fume Blanc, or Chianti. Though all three wines are really good, I personally recommend Chianti. It is the perfect complement to this dish.
