Chicken Fajita Salad w/Creamy Cilantro Lime DressingSubmitted by: MOXIE6
IntroductionThis is popular with my whole family. Even 4 picky kids. Everyone who tries this recipe loves it. I make a double batch of the seasoning and bake a larger amount of chicken breasts for all the boys. I serve it with brown basmati rice. This is popular with my whole family. Even 4 picky kids.

Add 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into thin strips and toss to coat.
Spray a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat to medium. Add chicken mixture and cook until chicken is done, about 8 minutes. Set aside.
Divide among four bowls: shredded romaine lettuce, sliced green bell pepper rings, sliced red onion rings, grated Cheddar cheese, black beans , tomato cut into wedges.
Top with chicken mixture and sauce.

I have a large family so I generally bake a batch of chicken breasts with the seasoning sprinkled over the top instead of sauteeing.
