Red Robin Copycat Ensenada Chicken Platter

This classic Red Robin dish, the Ensenada Chicken Platter, features spicy, juicy chicken breasts coated with a homemade spice blend and a simple southwest salad for a quick and healthy dinner.

This dish is one of my favorites that Red Robin does. My mom always orders it, and I thought it would be great to learn how to make it at home.

Josie’s has several different bagged salad options and this Southwest one pairs perfectly with the spiced chicken. It is almost exactly the same as what Red Robin serves. It features a delicious cilantro dressing right in the bag, but if you want to be more true to form of the Red Robin dish, try something like jalapeno ranch or spicy ranch. This will be closer to the restaurant’s “baja ranch.”

To serve, plate it with some salad, chicken breasts, salad dressing, salsa, and a wedge of fresh lime.

This spice blend works perfectly to coat the chicken, and depending on how many chicken breasts you make, you may have extra. Don’t throw it out! It’s a great mexican-style spice blend that would be great for tacos and fajitas. I used it in a classic chili recipe and it was wonderful!
