This Southwest chicken salad is such an easy and quick dinner to make, and a great way to get your kids to eat more veggies!

I love to make a salad station with all of veggies and other toppings in bowls so my kids can choose what they want to put on their salad. Some of our favorites for the Southwest chicken salad are black beans, corn, tomatoes, bell pepper, avocado and shredded cheese.

For the grilled chicken, I use this seasoning from Trader Joes. It has such a yummy flavor and it’s not too spicy. I use chicken breast cutlets since they are already sliced thin, season with the Chile Lime seasoning, salt and pepper. Then I cook the chicken in my cast iron skillet with some onions and minced garlic for extra flavor. Once the chicken is done cooking I let it sit for a couple of minutes before slicing to help retain the juices. I think the chicken is my kids’ favorite part of the salad… they LOVE the flavor!

Once everything is done my kids make their plates and choose which veggies they want to put on their salad… which is great because they both have such different tastes. I love that it’s such a healthy meal and can be done in about 30 minutes. You can save even more time if you prep your veggies in advance, but I don’t usually plan that far in advance!

I hope you enjoy!!!
