Celebrate the end of the week with this southwestern-style bake that is an all-in-one entree and salad. A crisp lettuce, such as romaine, iceberg or green leaf, works best. If cilantro isn't a family favourite, substitute parsley. Serve with sour cream.

  • Portion size 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 lb (450 g) chicken
  • 1 onion finely diced

In large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tsp of the oil over medium-high heat; brown turkey, breaking up with wooden spoon, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain in colander and set aside.

Add remaining oil, onion and garlic to skillet; cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, 3 to 4 minutes. Add salsa, corn, cilantro and chilli powder. Return turkey to pan and stir to combine.
