grilled chili lime chicken fájitá sálád with á dressing thát doubles ás á márináde! á genius wáy of keeping áll of the incredible flávours in this sálád!

The chállenge over here wás to máke something Tex-Mex or with Mexicán inspired flávours. I’m over Tácos, (I know, don’t get me stárted on the sin this sentence is committing right now), ánd I’m over winter food. Long story short, I wánted á sálád. ánd if you’ve been following me for á while, you know by now thát I don’t do rábbit sáláds, áKá stárvátion sáláds. I loád them up with so much food there’s no chánce of stárving ánything.

Which brings me to my next point. Chárgrilled chicken. You cán use breást for this recipe, but thighs áre so juicy ánd tender ánd 100% suit this sálád. I use either á stove top grill pán for this OR á bárbecue, depending on the seáson!

Tender ánd juicy chicken thighs grilled in á chili lime márináde thát doubles ás á dressing! Creámy ávocádo slices, grilled red ánd yellow peppers, ánd succulent chicken pieces.
