Pour half of the marinade into a shallow dish to marinate the chicken for two hours, if possible. Otherwise, a few minutes will suffice.

Refrigerate the intact marinade reserved for use as a vinaigrette later.

Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat with about a teaspoon of oil and roast chicken on each side until golden, crisp and cooked through. (Grill the chicken in small batches to prevent water from escaping.)

Once the chicken is cooked, let it sit for a while

Wipe the pan with a paper towel. Sprinkle the pan with another teaspoon of oil and fry the bacon until it is crisp.

Slice the chicken into strips and prepare the salad with romaine lettuce leaves, tomatoes, avocado slices, corn, onion strips and chicken.
