Because we do. That is, we know the way to take the Santa Fe Chicken Salad at Chili's and turn it into a totally guilt-free meal option! Looking for actual directions to New Mexico? Umm, try Google Maps...
One 4-oz. raw boneless skinless chicken breast cutlet, pounded to 1/2-inch thickness
1/8 tsp. chili powder
1/8 tsp. salt
Dash garlic powder
Dash onion powder
2 tbsp. fat-free sour cream
1/4 tsp. ranch dressing/dip seasoning mix
1 tsp. chipotle pepper sauce (like the kind by Tabasco)
4 cups chopped romaine lettuce
1/4 cup fresh pico de gallo
1 1/2 oz. sliced avocado (about 1/3rd of an avocado)
2 tbsp. coarsely chopped plus 1 tsp. finely chopped cilantro
5 baked tortilla chips, broken into bite-sized pieces
Bring a grill pan (or skillet) sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Season chicken with chili powder, salt, garlic powder, and onion powder. Cook chicken for about 3 minutes per side, until cooked through.
To make the dressing, in a small bowl, thoroughly mix ranch seasoning into sour cream. Add chipotle pepper sauce, and stir until uniform.
Place lettuce in a large bowl (or on a large plate). Top with pico de gallo, avocado, coarsely chopped cilantro, and tortilla chip pieces.
Slice chicken, and transfer to a medium bowl. Sprinkle with finely chopped cilantro, and toss to coat.
Top salad with chicken, and serve with dressing!
