Chicken Fiesta Salad Recipe

This is a dish I can prepare in fifteen minutes! My husband gave me the secret of using the broiler to cook chicken faster and I discovered the spice blend as I tried to find ways to use this quick cooking technique. It became a very tasty success. —Katie Rankin, Columbus, Ohio
