Let's Make It
1
Mix lime juice and chili powder until blended; pour over chicken in shallow dish. Turn chicken to evenly coat both sides of each breast with lime juice mixture. Refrigerate 20 min. to marinate.
2
Heat grill to medium heat. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Grill chicken and peppers 6 to 8 min. on each side or until chicken is done (165ºF).
3
Transfer chicken and peppers to cutting board; cut into strips. Place chicken and peppers in large bowl. Add lettuce and onions; mix lightly. Top with cheese and dressing.
Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
Shortcut
No time to marinate and grill? Substitute 2 pkg. (6 oz. each) OSCAR MAYER CARVING BOARD Southwestern Seasoned Chicken Breast Strips for the grilled marinated fresh chicken. Also, instead of grilling the quartered peppers cut them into thin strips before adding to the salad as is.
Tip 2
Use Your Broiler
Cook chicken and peppers under the broiler instead of on the grill.
Tip 3
Special Extra
Make some fun and delicious wraps by serving this salad wrapped in large flour tortillas.
Tip 4
Nutrition Bonus
Not only are the peppers in this low-calorie main-dish salad rich in vitamin C, but they team up with the lettuce to provide vitamin A.
