Instructions

For the grill:

  • Marinate chicken breast in in 3/4 cup of chimichurri sauce for 1 hour or overnight if possible.
  • Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Spray the corn with cooking spray.
  • 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.
  • To serve, cut the corn off the cob and slice the grilled chimichurri chicken into thin slices.

To assemble:

  • In a large salad bowl, add the entire contents of the Taylor Farms Southwest Chopped Salad Kit except for the creamy cilantro dressing. Toss together and divide into 3 separate salad bowls.
  • 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.
  • Top salads with creamy cilantro dressing and enjoy!

Notes

*Store-bought chimichurri sauce can be used as well.
