Southwestern Chicken Salad

This evening I decided to finish up some leftovers from the last few dinners I've made.  I had the last little Mexican Turkey Slider for lunch today.  I still had a couple of grilled boneless chicken thighs left from Saturday's dinner so I decided to make a big main dish salad tonight with them.  I picked up some humongous avocados yesterday at the store that I wanted to use in my salad so I put together a quick and easy Southwestern Chicken Salad.  I chopped a head of fresh romaine lettuce and put it in a big bowl and then topped it with diced grilled chicken, quartered cherry tomatoes, sliced avocado, shredded sharp cheddar cheese and then a dollop of sour cream and fresh salsa. It was a fresh, quick and easy way to use up the leftover chicken. I snapped a couple photos below. Enjoy!

We cooked up a bunch of chicken thighs tonight and this will be perfect for the left-overs! We love avocados ... we eat one practically every day. Costco does it again. The ones they carry are beautiful!
