Ingredients

    1/2 bag spring mix salad greens
    1 medium cucumber, peel on or off
    4 large scallions
    1 pound fresh chicken
    4-6 oz. low-fat cheese crumbles (like cheddar or mozzarella)
    1/2 can chipotle sauce
    2 tsp chili powder
    salt and pepper to taste
    2 Tb Fire Roasted salsa

Directions

Cook the chicken in a large saucepan, covered, until the centers are no longer pink and the juices run clear. (For flavor, I simmered my chicken in half a can of tomato sauce and a cup of water.) Set aside until cool enough to handle.
Shred the chicken with two forks, then add it back to the saucepan. Sprinkle the chili powder, salt and paper and chipotle sauce over the chicken, stir, and keep warm.
Chop cucumbers into small cubes and slice scallions into bite-sized chunks. Spread lettuce, then cucumbers and scallions, over plates or in bowls. Top with the shredded chicken. Salsa, especially Fire Roasted Salsa, makes a great spicy, low calorie dressing. Top it off with a couple ounces of cheese and voila!
Great with flatbread on the side.
