Chipotle Lime Chicken Salad

chipotle lime chicken salad
Prep Time: 15 minutes (after having cooked chicken from previous entry)

Grade: A+

Make Again: Yes

Recipe Source: Cook's Illustrated (July 2007)

I tried another version of the Cook's Illustrated grilled chicken and it was also terrific. I did modify again by using a little less oil. I also used Chipotle powder from Penzey's instead of chopping up a chipotle. It worked really well and I will continue to use this substitution. I actually made the chicken for sandwiches first. Then I used the leftovers for this salad.

~ Grilled Chipotle Lime Chicken - cut into bite sized pieces
~ Romaine lettuce
~ Corn (I used fresh corn on the cob cooked in microwave and cut from cob
~ Tortilla Chips
~ Leftover Dressing (I'll make addiitonal next time I use the chicken exactly for this purpose.)

Next time I may add black beans and chopped tomatoes or red peppers for a more colorful salad. It was delicious this way though.
