Mexican chicken Caesar salad is a classic recipe with a twist! Combine your favourite Mexican ingredients to create a salad so tasty and refreshing!


Ingredients

Chicken:

  • 2 chicken breasts, skinless and boneless
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 teaspoon olive oil

Dressing:

  • 1/2 cup Caesar dressing
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 2 teaspoons cilantro, finely chopped
  • pinch of cumin

Salad:

  • 2 heads romaine lettuce, washed and leaves separated
  • 1 cup corn, cooked and drained
  • 1 cup black beans, cooked and drained
  • 1 avocado, peeled and cubed
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried chilli flakes (optional)
  • 2 handfuls tortilla chips, loosely crumbled
  • lime wedges, to serve

Instructions

  1. Chicken: Season both sides of the chicken breasts with ground cumin, salt and pepper. Heat olive oil in a pan and shallow-fry the chicken breasts until brown and caramelised on both sides. Check that the chicken breasts are sufficiently cooked through (about 8-12 minutes), then remove from the heat and set aside. Slice each breast into small pieces.
  2. Dressing: Combine Caesar dressing with lime juice. Stir in finely chopped coriander and a pinch of cumin. Set aside.
  3. Salad: In a large bowl, combine chicken and remaining ingredients. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve with lime wedges.
