Mexican Chimichurri Chicken Salad

Serves: 2

For the grill:

For the salad + toppings:

  • 1 bag Taylor Farms Southwest Chopped Salad Kit
  • 1 large avocado, pitted and thinly sliced
  • 2 large stem tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 lime, cut into 6 wedges


For the grill:

  1. Marinate chicken breast in in 3/4 cup of chimichurri sauce for 1 hour or overnight if possible.
  2. Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Spray the corn with cooking spray.
  3. Place the marinated chicken breast and corn directly on the grill. Flip the corn every two minutes and remove when the corn has turned a bright yellow and has beautiful grill marks. Flip the chicken after 5 minutes and grill on the other side until chicken has fully cooked through.
  4. To serve, cut the corn off the cob and slice the grilled chimichurri chicken into thin slices.

To assemble:

  1. In a large salad bowl, add the entire contents of the Taylor Farms Southwest Chopped Salad Kit except for the creamy coriander dressing. Toss together and divide into 3 separate salad bowls.
  2. Add the sliced grilled chicken breast, grilled corn, avocado slices and chopped tomatoes to each bowl. Brush chicken with remaining chimichurri sauce and freshly squeezed lime juice.
  3. Top salads with creamy coriander dressing and enjoy!

*Store-bought chimichurri sauce can be used

    Sounds great, but I guess the sauce, you just add to much parsley or coriander?

      Sorry about the sauce not being clear. I have added a link in the recipe on how to make the parsley coriander chimichurric sauce.
