CHICKEN TACO SALAD



Chicken Taco Salad image

Provided by Ree Drummond : Food Network

Categories     main-dish

Time 16m

Yield 4 to 6 servings

Number Of Ingredients 15

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 tablespoons taco seasoning (store-bought or your own mix)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons butter
3/4 cup ranch dressing (bottled is fine)
1/4 cup salsa (as spicy as you'd like)
3 tablespoons finely minced fresh cilantro
2 ears corn, shucked
1 large head or 2 regular heads green leaf lettuce, shredded thin
3 Roma tomatoes, diced
1/2 cup grated pepper-jack cheese
2 avocados, diced
3 green onions, sliced
1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves
Tortilla chips of your choice (flavored or not), crushed slightly, for topping salad

Steps:

  • For the chicken: Generously sprinkle both sides of the breasts with the taco seasoning. Heat the oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken on both sides until deep golden brown on the outside and done in the middle (or to an internal temperature of 165 degrees F), about 4 minutes per side. Set aside to cool for 5 minutes.
  • For the dressing: While the chicken is cooking, pour the ranch dressing into a bowl. Add the salsa and cilantro and stir to combine.
  • For the salad: Next, place the ears of corn in the skillet you used to cook the chicken and roll them around so that the flavorful oil/butter mixture coats the corn. Grill on a grill pan or cook in a separate skillet until the corn is still crisp but has color on the outside. Slice off the kernels with a sharp knife and set aside. Dice the chicken into cubes.
  • On a platter, layer the shredded lettuce, diced chicken, tomatoes, cheese, corn, avocados, green onions, cilantro and crushed chips. Drizzle the dressing all over the top, saving some to serve on the side if you'd like. Serve the salad in individual bowls.

DORITOS® TACO SALAD



Doritos® Taco Salad image

I love this dish! It reminds me of potlucks and summertime. It's full of every texture--warm, cool, crisp, soft, crunchy. It has a touch of sweetness and tanginess from the dressing, and the lovely nacho cheese flavor from the chips, with the taco-seasoned meat. It all works together deliciously and is a quick and easy meal that's ready to go anytime.
