Step 1

Marinate the chicken: In a bowl or sealable plastic bag, combine the chicken, chili powder, cumin, oregano, salt, pepper, garlic, vinegar, and 2 tablespoons olive oil. Marinate for at least 30 minutes or as long as overnight.

Step 2

Cook the chicken: Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté the chicken pieces for 8-10 minutes until golden brown and cooked through. Remove the chicken from the pan.

Step 3

Prepare the fajita veggies: To the same pan, add in the olive oil, peppers, onion, oregano, and salt. Sauté for 5-6 minutes until softened and caramelized.

Step 4

Prepare the beans: Add the beans, chili powder, cumin, and lime juice to a saucepan over medium heat. Cook the beans for a few minutes, stirring occasionally, until heated. Taste and add salt if needed.

Step 5

Make the dressing: Whisk together all dressing ingredients in a jar or bowl.

Step 6

Assemble the salad: Place 2 heaping cups of salad greens on each plate. Top with chicken, black beans, fajita veggies, and additional toppings like salsa, sour cream, guacamole, pico, and cheese. Drizzle dressing over each salad.
