Taco Salad

  1. Preheat the grill, setting the burners to high. Oil the grate.
  2. On a work surface, season the chicken with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with the chili powder. Grill for 4 to 5 minutes on each side, or until the chicken is cooked through. Let cool. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour, or until it is completely chilled. When ready to serve, slice the chicken.
  3. Place the sliced chicken in the middle of a large serving platter. Arrange the lettuce, tomatoes, avocado, beans and chips around the chicken. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Serve with the dressing and, if desired, sour cream.
