BBQ Chicken Salad Recipe


This is another one of those recipes I tried at a restaurant and loved so much I just had to remake it at home and over the years I've changed it up on multiple occasions depending on what was in my fridge at the time.  I think I originally had it at California Pizza Kitchen years ago; Panera has a very similar BBQ Chopped Chicken Salad.

Ingredients:
  • BBQ chicken (grill after marinating in your favorite bbq sauce overnight)
  • Romaine
  • Black beans (washed and drained)
  • Corn (drained)
  • Jicama (optional, but trust me it is worth every bite!)
  • Favorite veggies 
  • BBQ sauce or Ranch dressing
Steps:
  1. Marinate chicken in your favorite BBQ sauce overnight (I prefer Sweet Baby Ray's) and grill completely through.
  2. Prepare lettuce, black beans, jicama, and any other veggies on plate.
  3. Put corn in skillet to "blacken" on medium-high heat until warmed and slightly black in places. (This step is not necessary, but it adds flavor and makes your salad seem more gourmet)
  4. Garnish with extra BBQ sauce or your favorite dressing.
  5. Enjoy!
