Fiery Chicken Spinach Salad Recipe

Fiery Chicken Spinach Salad Recipe

This hearty and colorful main-course salad is easy to throw together when I get home from work, because it uses canned black beans and Mexicorn and packaged chicken breast strips. I sometimes add a can of ripe olives and fresh cherry tomatoes from our garden.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 10 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 6 frozen breaded spicy chicken breast strips, thawed
  • 1 package (6 ounces) fresh baby spinach
  • 1 medium tomato, cut into 12 wedges
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1/2 cup fresh baby carrots
  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (11 ounces) Mexicorn, drained
  • 3 tablespoons salsa
  • 3 tablespoons barbecue sauce
  • 3 tablespoons prepared ranch salad dressing
  • 2 tablespoons shredded Mexican cheese blend

Directions

  • 1. Heat chicken strips in a microwave according to package directions. Meanwhile, arrange the spinach on individual plates; top with tomato, green pepper, carrots, beans and corn.
  • 2. In a small bowl, combine the salsa, barbecue sauce and ranch dressing. Place chicken over salads. Drizzle with dressing; sprinkle with cheese. Yield: 6 servings.

"This was so easy and my husband loved it! I made it without the carrots, because I'm not a huge fan of them. The dressing is awesome."

MY REVIEW

"This definitely came together quick. The equal portions of the salsa, ranch and BBQ sauce was delicious. I will probably use that as a dip. Next time I would omit the baby carrots though, it was to much of a crunch for the delicate spinach entree."
