Most of these ingredients are in my kitchen on a regular basis, so that makes this one of my favorite go-to salads. Mix it up with what you have. My special touch was the chipotle powder that gives the chicken and ranch dressing a kick. I hope you make something of your own!
Chipotle pepper powder
Tortilla chips or strips
Mix a dash of the chipotle pepper powder with the teriyaki marinade and marinate the chicken for at least 1 hour or up to overnight. Prep the fresh ingredients - wash the lettuce, chop the tomato, zucchini, avocado, and onion. Arrange on a plate along with the corn, cheese, and tortilla strips. In a small dish, mix the ranch dressing and more of the chipotle pepper powder to taste.
Lastly, cook the chicken. On a preheated grill, cook the chicken (roughly 5-8 minutes per side depending on your grill). Allow the chicken to rest for a few minutes before slicing. Add the chicken to the salad, dress with the dressing, and you know how the rest goes -- EAT :)
