Easy Chicken Taco Salad
Heat the olive oil over medium heat then add in the chicken strips. Coat the chicken in the oil by stirring it well. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and chili powder. Stir over medium heat until fully cooked, about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, stir ranch dressing and salsa together. Reserve 2-3 tablespoons for the greens.
Once the chicken is cooked pour the dressing/salsa combo over it, stir well and reduce to a low simmer for 5 more minutes. Stir a few times.
Meanwhile, grate your cheese and toss the greens with the reserved dressing.
Build your plate starting with the greens, chips, chicken mixture and lastly the cheese.
