Individual Chicken Taco Salads

I was stumped one afternoon as to what I should prepare for dinner and went to the web - seeking ideas.
My family enjoyed this new twist (especially as it was pretty customizable), and we liked the quick and easy, yet light feel.

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
Tortilla chips
Shredded romaine lettuce
Shredded cheese
Diced tomatoes
Diced onions
Chili powder
Key lime wedges or juice
Sour cream

Dice chicken and cook for 2-5 minutes in 1 t. olive oil, or in a pan sprayed with vegetable spray until tender and cooked through.
Season chicken with 1-2 t. chili powder, 1 t. cumin, and salt and pepper to taste.

Serve over tortilla chips on a bed of romaine lettuce, and top with cheese, tomatoes, olives, onions, cheese, sour cream, and salsa as desired.
Top with a squeeze or two from the key limes.
