Chicken Fajita Salad

For the Fajitas:
3/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 skinless chicken breast halves, boned and defatted
4 teaspoons olive oil

For the Salad:
4 cups mixed salad greens
2 cups thinly sliced red onion
2 medium tomatoes, cut into wedges
1/2 cup chopped scallions
1/4 cup sliced kalamata olives
2 cups thinly sliced red bell peppers
12 tablespoons lo-cal Salad dressing, such as Trader Joe’s Cilantro or Litehouse Lite Salsa Ranch

In a small bowl, combine dry ingredients for the Fajitas.  Cut chicken breast meat into 1-inch strips.  Place strips flat on a plate and season with spice mix.

Heat a large sauté pan over medium heat and add olive oil.  Cook chicken in batches, about 3 to 5 minutes to ensure nice browning.  When cooked through, remove from heat and allow to cool completely.  Refrigerate.

Ina a large bowl, combine mixed greens, red onion, tomato wedges, scallions, olives and red bell peppers.  Toss to combine.  Divide salad into equal portions on 4 large plates.  Top each portion with 4 ounces chicken strips and drizzle with 3 tablespoons lo-cal dressing.
