  • Mix lime juice and chili powder; pour over chicken in shallow glass dish. Turn chicken to evenly coat both sides of each breast. Refrigerate 20 min. to marinate.
  • Heat grill to medium heat. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Grill chicken and peppers 5 min. on each side or until chicken is done (165ºF).
  • Cut chicken and peppers into strips; place in large bowl. Add lettuce and onions; mix lightly. Top with cheese and dressing.

Shortcut

No time to marinate and grill? Substitute 2 pkg. (6 oz. each) OSCAR MAYER Southwestern Grilled Chicken Breast Strips for the grilled marinated fresh chicken. Cut peppers into thin slices and add to salad without grilling.

Use Your Broiler

Cook chicken and peppers under the broiler instead of on the grill.

Special Extra

Make some fun and delicious wraps by serving this salad wrapped in large flour tortillas.

    Family loved this! Easy to make, lots of flavor.

    Very good recipe, even good without red pepper and red onion. The first time I made it, I didn't have the red pepper and red onion in my fridge, but I had a green pepper and added that, like the recipe says to. I don't use the crumbles cheese, just the shredded Mexican cheese. Very easy and great to take to work! When I take it to work, I add the salad dressing once I am ready to finally eat it.
