I love Chicken in a Vinaigrette dressing. This is a favorite caribbean recipe. Served at the famous Bahama Breeze for those of you that are familiar with their appetizers. Got the recipe from a relative that is a frequent caribbean host. ;) Enjoy!

Directions See How It's Made
- Chicken: Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Season Chicken on both sides with Creole seasoning and kosher salt. Grill on each side until done, or until chicken reaches 165 - 170ºF. Remove from grill.
- While chicken is grilling, lay tortillas on baking sheet. With a fork, poke holes in tortillas, ½ inch apart over the whole tortilla. Lightly brush with olive oil and bake in preheated oven until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Evenly sprinkle cheese onto tortillas and continue baking until cheese is completely melted.
- Place 2 tortillas on each of four plates. Toss spring mix with citrus vinaigrette, corn kernels, and peppers and mound one-fourth of mixture on top of each plate of tortillas. Sprinkle tomato salsa over salad mix.
- When done, slice the grilled chicken on a clean cutting board and place on top of salad, drizzle with chimichurri sauce. Top with avocado fan.
- Mix all ingredients together. Refrigerate drizzle salad before serving.
