Bajio's Green Chile Chicken Salad

Are you cravin' something yummy? We suggest this "to die for salad". A favorite among Our Recipe Garden visitors. This one is well worth the time.

2 Grilled Chicken Breasts
2 cups Fresh Pico De Gallo
1 cup Shredded Cheese (a mix of cheddar and jack cheese)
8 cups of Fresh Lettuce mix (a combination of red and green leaf is optimal)
For the chicken:
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 with a bit of balsamic vinegar, until done and set aside to rest. Once the chicken has had time to cool, shred into small pieces.

For onion:
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 a cup of Green Chile Chutney, and saute all together until well heated.

On individual plates, pile with mixed greens, add a cup of Fresh Pico De Gallo. Add the warm chicken mixture and top with cheese and a cilantro lime dressing. Serve.

  1. I don't know how I came across your blog, but I did. I am so excited to try this recipe, I love love love this salad (once i had it 4 times in a week). Can you buy green chili chutney? or is this something you make?

  2. A great place to find the green chili chutney would be Pirate O's in Draper. I'll put their link on the main page.

  3. Pirate-O's Gourmet Food Store:
    11901 S 700 E Draper, UT 84020

  4. AHH, one of my favorite stores, and so close to my house, THANKS!

  5. Thank you so much! I've been out in DC for a few months now and CRAVE this salad even more now that I can't have it.

  6. I've been looking for this recipe! I recently moved from Utah to California and I am having Bajio with -drawls.

    One of the guys who works there also told me they cook the chicken with a little balsamic vinegar.

    Thanks for sharing!
