Taco Salad is one of the go-to meals in my house. When I don't feel like cooking something new or taking a lot of time to think about what I am cooking, Taco Salad becomes one of the top choices for dinner. I do have endless variations, often depending on what is in the refrigerator.

The chicken can be cooked up to two days ahead and kept in the refrigerator until needed. Try doubling the chicken portion of the recipe - some to use that night and some to keep - so you can have it again later in the week.
