A wonderful blend of spices, herbs, and a bit of a "bite" from the jalapeno combine so well with the chicken and corn in this salad. One of my favorites! If you can't get fresh corn, you may substitute frozen corn.

Directions

  1. Fill a large skillet with 1 inch (2.5 cm) of water. Add lemon slices, bay leaf, peppercorns and 2/3 of the thyme, and bring to boiling over high heat. Add chicken, reduce heat to low and simmer for 15-18 minutes, turning chicken once, until juices run clear and chicken is no longer pink. Remove chicken from liquid and set aside to cool.
  2. In a small skillet, stir together the paprika and remaining thyme over medium-low heat for 2 minutes. In a small bowl, whisk together the toasted paprika mixture, mayonnaise, sour cream, salt, ground pepper and nutmeg until evenly blended.
  3. Cube cooled chicken and transfer to a medium bowl. Add prepared dressing, corn, cilantro, orange pepper and jalapeno and toss until evenly coated. Serve warm, or refrigerate until ready to serve.

Delicious! I served it in pita halves.

At least it was filling... I made this for dinner tonight and was not impressed. The taste was not what I was looking for, too bland for a "southwestern" dish. Even after doubling the jalapeno and seasoning the green pepper. The creamy dressing was bland, I added salsa to it and it still was not good. Will not make again, but at least my tummy is full.

Easy, quick and yummy. I accidentally left my unfinished pita with this salad in my mom's fridge after visiting her. She asked me a few days later what I had left because she had eaten it and loved it!
