Very tasty, but a little bland. I decided just poaching chicken and throwing it in would be boring so I did this for the chicken: Recipe #181195 which I think helped a lot. I also added 1/2 cup green onions but kept feeling like red would have been better. I didn't have just romaine so I used a "spring greens" mix that had romaine and several other types of lettuce in it. My cherry tomatoes are just starting to ripen so I added what I had right off the vine! Mmm!! I will definitely do this again! However I think next time I'll use red instead of green onions and maybe a little more chili powder.

This had a wonderful flavor and was filling enough for a full meal. I think next time I will use less ranch dressing, as it was a little runny. But otherwise a great tasting dish.

We thought this was great. I made it slightly different than called for. I cubed my chicken and then stirfryed in a tsp of olive oil with a sprinkle of chilli powder and a dash of lime juice. Then I added the pepper strips and scallions. Then I made the salad and dressing as stated. Very good combo. I will use this recipe often in the summer for leftover grilled chicken.
