Recipe Ingredients for Salsa Chicken

8 cups finely shredded iceberg lettuce
3 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 pound chicken breasts, boneless and skinless, cut into 1" pieces
2 large egg whites
2 tablespoon olive oil
8 ounces salsa
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cilantro sprigs

Recipe Directions for Salsa Chicken

  1. Divide the lettuce among 4 plates, cover and set aside. In a large bowl, combine the chili powder and cumin. Add the chicken, turning to coat. Lift the chicken from the bowl, shaking off the excess coating. Dip the chicken into the egg whites, then coat again with the remaining dry mixture.

  2. Heat the oil in a wide nonstick frying pan over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the chicken and stir-fry gently until no longer pink in the center. Cut to test (5-7 minutes). Remove the chicken from the pan and keep warm. Pour the salsa into the pan; reduce the heat to medium and cook, stirring, until the salsa is heated through and slightly thickened.

  3. Arrange the chicken over the lettuce; top with the salsa and sour cream. Garnish with cilantro sprigs, if using.
