3 tablespoons chopped cilantro
3 tablespoons taco seasoning
Shredded lettuce

12 (3/4-ounce) slices Land O Lakes® Deli American cut in half diagonally
Shredded carrot
Pico de gallo


Combine chicken, corn, sour cream, bell pepper, beans, cilantro and taco seasoning in bowl; mix well. Divide chicken salad among 4 small resealable plastic food containers; cover. Store in refrigerator.

Recipe Tip

- Using a fully cooked rotisserie chicken is an easy way to get cooked chicken when making chicken salad.

- If you don’t have a bento box-style container, use foil baking cups in a square container to create little spaces to hold ingredients. One-half cup or smaller-sized containers are great for dressings and sauces.
