    Barbecue Chicken Salad Recipe

    For a while I wrote a fun series of posts on Babble called “3 Kids, A Mom & a Kitchen.” For one of the article the girls and I made a super tasty Barbecue Chicken Salad recipe. I just clicked through to link to that recipe for today’s weekly menu and discovered that Babble did a website update, which means the captions that had the recipe included are missing! So, I’m reposting the recipe here, for posterity’s sake. Well, actually, mostly for my sake so I can have the recipe handy. 😉

    This is one of those recipes that’s not really a recipe – no measurements necessary and feel free to add or omit ingredients at will. I pretty much stole the idea for this salad from a restaurant called Croutons. Enjoy!

    Author:
    Ingredients
    • Grilled chicken breast
    • Barbecue sauce
    • Romaine lettuce, chopped
    • Shredded cheese, cheddar or mozzarella
    • Canned black beans, rinsed and drained
    • Canned corn
    • Chopped tomato
    • Cornbread croutons (if I can find these at the store I toast cubed cornbread in the oven until crispy)
    • Chopped Granny Smith Apples
    • Ranch dressing
    Instructions
    1. Shred grilled chicken and toss in barbecue sauce to coat.
    2. Toss everything together and serve with ranch dressing. Voila!
    3. No set amount for ingredients - plan for about ½ chicken breast per person and adjust ingredients as necessary for the size of the salad!
