Prepare pico de gallo: In small bowl, combine all ingredients; mix
well; cover and refrigerate overnight.
Place all marinade ingredients in resealable plastic bag or in
non-reactive baking pan; add chicken, turn
to coat. If using a pan, cover. Refrigerate over night, turning
chicken in marinade occasionally.
When ready to cook chicken, preheat grill. Remove chicken from
marinade; discard marinade. Season both sides of chicken with
fajita seasoning. Place on hot grill and grill until done and
juices run clear.
Meanwhile, prepare Mexi-ranch dressing: In small bowl, combine all
ingredients and mix well. Cover and refrigerate.

cream, a ramekin of pico de gallo and a ramekin of guacamole on
plate. Top salad with chicken.
Garnish with chopped scallions and crushed tortilla chips.
Serve with Applebee’s Mexi-Ranch Dressing.
