READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by cookiedog

This makes a festive dinner especially when served with some margaritas. You can replace the chicken breast halves in this recipe with prepared rotisserie chicken.

This was very tasty! The black beans tended to fall to the bottom of the salad so next time I will add them to the dressing instead and maybe reduce the amount to 1/2 can. Had this as our main dish with Sweet Corn Quesadillas #517771 on the side. Great dinner!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Taco-Ranch Dressing: Whisk together all the dressing ingredients in a medium bowl. Refrigerate until chilled, at least 30 minutes.
  3. Chicken: Mix the taco seasoning, onion powder, and kosher salt in a small bowl. Season the chicken on both sides with the spice mixture and brush with the canola oil. Place the chicken on the prepared baking sheet and bake until opaque in the center, 15 to 20 minutes.
  4. Salad: Combine the beans, avocado, tomato, and taco seasoning in a large bowl and toss gently. Add the lettuce, chips, and cilantro. Add 1/2 cup of the dressing and toss, adding additional dressing if necessary. Divide between 2 plates. Slice the chicken and fan on top of the salads. Garnish each with a lime wedge.
