Spice up your weeknight repertoire and add this quick, skillet recipe for two to your go-to line-up. It also works well for a packable lunch because it’s refreshing when enjoyed chilled. To keep the salad greens fresh and crisp, divide the different components of the dish into separate containers and wait to assemble it until right before digging in. Don’t stir the chicken and vegetable mixture too frequently while cooking so they’ll char which will give them a smoky flavour. If you don’t have fresh cilantro hand, you can use chopped green onion. For added heat and color, top with sliced fresh jalapeños.
