Chipotle Chicken and Blood Orange Salad with Honey Lime Dressing is my winter salad of choice. It’s great for meal prep or an easy, healthy weeknight dinner. This salad is packed with lots of greens, veggies, protein and immune-boosting citrus fruit!

Ingredients

Chipotle chicken:

Honey Lime Dressing:

Salad:

Instructions

  1. Place chicken breasts in a shallow dish. In a small bowl, whisk together remaining chipotle chicken ingredients, and rub evenly over both sides of the chicken breasts. If time permits, let chicken sit for 30 minutes at room temperature or overnight. If refrigerated, let chicken sit at room temperature for 15-30 minutes before cooking.
  2. Add oil to a large skillet and heat over medium-high. Once hot, add chicken and cook for 4-5 minutes until browned. Reduce heat to medium. Flip chicken, cover and cook for an additional 6-7 minutes until chicken is fully cooked through. Once done, let rest for 5-7 minutes then slice.
  3. While the chicken cooks, you can make the dressing. Add all ingredients to a small bowl, and whisk until combined. Adjust to taste: add more adobo sauce for more heat, more honey to make it sweeter, or more lime to make it tangier.
  4. In a large serving bowl, toss together salad ingredients, sliced chicken and dressing. Sprinkle with fresh cilantro and pumpkin seeds. Serve!

Notes

*I used Frontera Chipotle Pepper Adobo Sauce with Roasted Tomato. Alternatively, you can buy chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. If you go this route, I recommend you starting with 2 chipotle peppers, and finely chopping them. For more heat, add more peppers or a little bit of the sauce to the dressing.
