Recipe Directions for Bajio Green Chili Chicken Salad

  1. Marinate Chicken Breasts in 1 cup of lime juice and 1 cup oil, let stand for at least two hours in the refrigerator. On a hot grill, grill the chicken until done and set aside to rest. Once the chicken has had time to rest and cool, shred into small pieces. Slice 1 whole white onion into slices. In a medium saute pan, add 2 TBL spoons of oil and saute the onions until they are translucent. Once the onions are done, add the shredded chicken and cup of Green Chile Chutney, and saute all together until well heated. Slice corn tortillas into strips and saute them in oil until crispy. Drain on a paper towel until ready to serve. On individual plates, pile with mixed greens, add a cup of Fresh Pico De Gallo. Add the warm chicken mixture and top with cheese, a cilantro lime dressing and crispy tortilla strips. Serve.
