Ingredients

Skinless chicken breast

160 g, fat trimmed, (buy 200g)

Taco shell

4 regular

Extra light sour cream

cup(s)

Fresh coriander

¼ cup(s)

Lime juice

2 tbs

Iceberg lettuce

6 individual, torn

Red onion

½ medium, thinly sliced

Tomato(es)

½ cup(s)

Instructions

  1. Lightly spray a large non-stick frying pan with oil and heat over medium heat. Cook chicken for 4–5 minutes each side or until cooked through. Transfer to a plate. Cover chicken with foil and set aside to rest for 5 minutes before slicing thickly.
  2. Meanwhile, heat taco shells following packet instructions. Break into 3cm pieces.
  3. Whisk sour cream, coriander and juice in a small bowl until combined. Season dressing with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  4. Place chicken, taco pieces, lettuce, onion, tomatoes and corn in a large bowl. Drizzle with three-quarters of the dressing and toss gently to combine. Serve salad topped with avocado and drizzled with remaining dressing.

Notes

TIP: To make this salad vegetarian, replace the chicken with 1 cup (200g) drained canned red kidney beans.
