Chipolte Chicken and Pear Salad

by zesty on January 26, 2011 · 5 comments

Holy Salad again! I am starting to impress myself with my eating habits of late. This was just a quick last minute put together dinner that was tasty for sure but I was starving by 8:00pm. Not the end of the world as you know I love eating and it was just in time for the hockey game to start. For my evening snack I went with a bowl of cereal and my traditional handful of “All Dressed” chips well OK, maybe 2 handfuls and a bit of chocolate at the end.

It takes me back to the sweet and salty post from a while ago. I am definitely both!

Back to the salad

For this simple salad I went with the combination of chicken and fruit which I love. The crisp pear was a great match for the spicy chicken. I just had some frozen boneless chicken breasts that were done up chipolte style from the grocery store. I roasted them in the oven for 25 minutes and chopped them up with some other fruits and vegetables. Here is the mix.


  • Baby Romaine Lettuce
  • Sliced strawberries
  • Sliced Pears
  • Cooked Chicken breast
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Cucumbers
  • Carrots
  • Tomatoes
  • Olive oil


  1. Cook and slice chicken breasts
  2. Prepare all fruits and vegetables in the salad by washing and chopping to your desired sizes
  3. Organize the salad in the bowl
  4. In a small jar, mix 2 parts oil to one part balsamic – add a dash of mustard and shake.
  5. Dress the salad and serve
  6. ENJOY!

So there you have yet another simple salad for your Wednesday pick me up! I don’t really have much to say other than I hope you enjoy the salad. I am not sure what I am going to post for Friday as of yet but I did make another sweet potato dish a couple of weeks back that may be worthy of sharing. Have an awesome hump day and keep smiling.

Take care

I would love to eat that salad!. I like chipolte flavored meat and putting it in a salad is always good. But fixing that at home will always get a comment from Daughter about “I Can’t Eat That. It IS TOO SPICY HOT” She can’t handle heat or spicy of any level so I do not fx spicy foods that often.

Very tasty! I really love pears (and candied walnuts) in my salad.

Looks delicious, Zesty! I love fruit in my salads. I’m having a salad every day this month to celebrate National Salad Month. This is definitely going on my menu plan :)

The Spanish teacher in me has to correct you though, it’s chipotle, not chipolte!
