Green Chile Chicken Salad Bowls

This delicious, high protein salad is the perfect savory lunch. Made with fresh veggies and seasoned chicken, this Green Chile Chicken Salad Bowl has something for everyone to love.

What gives this recipe a kick is the seasoned chicken. To make this chicken you place the chicken thighs with the Hatch Green Enchilada Sauce in an Instant Pot for 12 minutes. Then after you let the steam release naturally and shred the chicken. After that all that is left is to assemble the bowls.

Another special thing about this recipe is the refreshing Hatch Chile Cilantro Dressing you put on top of this salad. Made with cilantro leaves and Hatch Diced Green Chiles, this dressing compliments the salad very well by giving your taste buds a slight spice.
