I don’t know what the weather is like where you live, but here in Utah in the last week we’ve had rain, snow and 70° temperatures all in the last seven days. I thought it was supposed to be spring?! That’s one reason I have been using our BBQ and making more salads… I figure I can’t control the weather but I can control what I cook and by cooking summer-y meals it can at least make me feel like it’s summer for the 15-20 minutes of dinnertime. I loved this salad and it was so easy to make! You’ll love it too and it’ll help cure you from the the winter blues!! Recipe inspiration from: Damn Delicious
BBQ Chicken Salad
Some posts may contain affiliate links. For more information please see the disclosure page.
1 boneless, skinless chicken breast sliced in half
Salt and pepper
6 cups romaine lettuce
1 Roma tomato
3/4 cup black beans
1/4 cup shredded cheese (I used Three Cheese Mexican Blend)
1/4 cup tortilla strips (You can use store bought or the recipe I have below. If you make your own you will need 6 corn tortillas)
1/4 cup BBQ sauce
1/2 cup ranch dressing
Preheat oven to 375°.
Stack tortillas and cut in 1/2″ strips. Then cut in half.
Lay on a cookie sheet and brush with olive oil. Season with salt and cook for 12-15 minutes until crispy.
Season chicken with salt and pepper. Cook in skillet or on grill. Cut cooked chicken into bite size pieces.
Chop lettuce and top with chicken, tomatoes, cheese and tortilla strips.
Drizzle BBQ sauce and ranch on top.
I had something like this this past week too! Only mine had chili & corn instead of chicken & black beans. But now I want yours! Thanks for sharing (& making me hungry again even though I just ate, LOL).
