Mexican Style Chicken Salad

I'm leaving on a trip this week so I have been eating everything I can to clean out my fridge. I had purchased a rotisserie chicken and used half of it to make Chicken Mole Tacos earlier this week and was left with plenty of cilantro and lime. I decided to make use of those ingredients and make a Mexican Style Chicken Salad with the rest of the chicken. This has turned out to be one of my favorite chicken salads! Hope you enjoy it too.

I served it on top of a bed of spinach for lunch one day and stuffed avocados for dinner the next!

Mexican Style Chicken Salad ( Serves 2-3)
- 3c Shredded Chicken ( I used a plain rotisserie chicken)
- 1/2c Cilantro, Chopped
- 1/8tsp of each: Cumin, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder
- Salt and Paprika ( To taste)
- 1/2-1 Lime, Juiced
- 1/4c Mayo or Greek Yogurt if that's what you prefer
- 1/3-1/2c of each: Minced Onion and Chopped Bell Pepper
- 1/2c Corn (I use frozen)
  1. Mix together your mayo, lime juice, seasonings, and cilantro.
  2. Pour the mixture over your shredded chicken, bell pepper, onion, and corn.
  3. Make sure everything is well mixed and enjoy!
Have a wonderful week, I'll post more goodness when I get back from my trip!
