  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in skillet over medium heat. Sprinkle both sides of each chicken breast with 2 tablespoons of the fajita seasoning. When skillet is hot, add chicken; cook until well-browned and cooked through, about 3 to 4 minutes per side. Remove chicken from pan, cut into bite-size pieces, and set aside.
  2. Pour beans, corn, and salsa into the hot skillet, and season with remaining fajita mixture; simmer until hot, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. In a large bowl, toss salad greens, green onions, and cilantro with remaining 4 tablespoons olive oil and lime juice. Add chicken and bean mixture; toss again, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve warm.

Loved the addition of the cilantro to the salad greens! I have made this several times now and we enjoy it everytime. I top individual bowls of salad with the hot chicken & salsa mix so no lef...

Even my vegtable hating husband liked this salad. We both liked that it had some flavor and spice to it, not hot spicy, but flavor spicy.

Wonderful flavors (love the cilantro and the lime!), but maybe I had the chicken mixture too hot - the greens I used (Spring Mix) wilted quickly. I served it when we were entertaining friends, ...

This was really good and easy to make - said 4 servings but they were huge and we had a lot left over.

Fantastic. I use spinach leaves and cut the chicken in small pieces. Any warm salad is expected to wilt, and it's perfect with spinach (not to mention healthy). Big WARNING: do not add the "...

This was FANTASTIC! The entire family loved it--even 20 month old! It was yummy cold the next day as well :)
