Chipotle Chicken Salad- Lynn’s Recipes

A super simple salad that is perfect for lunch or a light dinner.

Chipotle Chicken Salad


1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2/3 cup light sour cream
1 Tablespoon minced chipotle chili, canned in adobo sauce
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
4 teaspoons fresh lime juice
¼ teaspoon salt

Mix above ingredients together well and then set aside while you make the salad.


4 cups romaine lettuce torn or shredded
2 cups chopped roasted skinless, boneless chicken breasts — I used a rotisserie chicken from the deli at my grocery store
1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
½ cup diced avocado
1/3 cup thinly, vertically sliced red onion
1 (15-ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 (8-3/4 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained and rinsed

Combine lettuce and remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Drizzle the dressing over the salad and toss gently to coat. Serve immediately.

You can make this spicier if you add a spoonful of the adobo sauce from the can. You may also substitute kidney or pinto beans for the black beans, if you prefer.
