  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

  • 4 cups mixed salad greens in bite-sized pieces (washed)

Spicy Roasted Corn and Chicken Salad Recipe Instructions

The first thing I did was to preheat my broiler to high. Then I cooked my chicken in the Instant Pot with 1 cup of water. After that I combined lime juice, chili powder and salt.  Then I brushed corn ears with the seasoning mixture; place on a broiler pan. Broiled 6 inches from heat source until lightly browned; turn and continue broiling until barely cooked, a total of 7 to 10 minutes. Cool. While that is cooling, in a bowl, I combined chicken and tomatoes. Cut each avocado into slices then cut slices in half crosswise; added it to my chicken mixture.  Add ¼ cup Spicy Salad Dressing; toss gently. Cut two or three ¼-inch slices from each corn ear; set aside. Cut remaining corn kernels from the cobs, by holding the ear upright in a shallow bowl so the kernels don’t scatter. Next I divided the salad greens among 5 dinner plates. Finally I topped with the chicken mixture and then the roasted corn kernels. Garnish with reserved corn rounds. Serve with additional dressing, if desired.
