Southwestern Chicken Layered Salad

Southwestern Chicken Layered Salad

This amazing Southwestern Chicken Layered Salad was sent to me years ago by a friend.  She is no longer with us but every time I prepare this recipe I think of her.  This was her choice on Taco Tuesdays and mine was always soft tacos.  Now, I make this for my family and everyone loves it.  Check it out!

Southwestern Chicken Layered Salad


6 cups torn romaine lettuce
2 cups shredded deli rotisserie chicken (from 2- to 2 1/2-lb chicken)
1 can (11 oz) Southwestern style corn, drained, liquid reserved
2 tablespoons taco seasoning mix (from 1-oz package)
1/2 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend (2 oz)
1/2 cup Kroger Lite Southwest Ranch
1 cup corn chips (1 1/2 oz)
salsa, if desired


1. Arrange lettuce on large platter. In 10-inch nonstick skillet, place chicken and reserved liquid from corn. Sprinkle with taco seasoning mix. Cook over medium heat 2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly, until blended and thoroughly heated.
2. Arrange chicken mixture over lettuce. Sprinkle with cheese and corn. Drizzle with dressing; top with corn chips. Garnish with salsa.

Over the years my taste have changed.  Now, I add Rotel Tomatoes, avocado, and black beans.  Avocado Ranch is also a great substitute for the Kroger Lite Southwest Ranch!
