Some days time gets away from me and before I know it, it is dinner time. So I am desperately trying to figure out a balanced meal that I can toss together quickly. I usually have Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken on hand because the chicken is simple to make and full of protein. I also use Italian Dressing due to its robust and zesty flavor. Both of these items help make a flavorful quick meal. That is why I chose to use them in my southwest chicken salad.

Once I had the chicken and dressing, then it is just a matter of grabbing a couple of other ingredients to toss in the salad and we had a delicious meal.
