4 Whole Wheat Tortillas (Don Pancho is the brand they use.  I use Orrowheat)

12 ounces chicken breast, cooked and sliced
4 oz cheddar flavored soy cheese (I use fat free feta)

8 oz BLR Southwest vinaigrette ( I will post this later...I use Hernandez verde sauce)

Chicken seasoning:
1 tsp Onion Powder
1tsp Garlic powder
1 tsp chilli powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper

Preheat oven to 350. Add seasoning to chicken, and place on sheet pan.  Bake chicken for 20 minutes, and then cut into 1/2 inch strips.  Steam the brown rice, and heat up the black beans in a saute pan. Warm the tortillas, and place one in each bowl.  Add 1/4 c of black beans, 1/4 cup brown rice, 5 strips of chicken (approx 3 oz), and 1 oz of cheese in each bowl.  In mixing bowl combine the lettuce and with the vinaigrette until coated.  Split lettuce between 4 bowls and add Pico del gallo to garnish.
