This Trader Joe’s southwestern chopped salad with chicken in the air fryer makes a great lunch for two or an easy weeknight dinner!
If you’ve never checked our TJ’s salad kits, you should! This southwestern chopped salad is one of my favorites!
I would say one bag feeds two adults, so if you are making this for more than two people, I would grab another bag!
We made this chicken in the air fryer, seasoned with TJ’s BBQ rub with coffee and garlic! It was a quick meal in about 2o minutes!
Don’t have an air fryer? We’ve had this one for years, and love it! Find it HERE.
