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!

Barbecue Chicken Salad
Adapted from a dish served at a restaurant called Croutons
  • 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
  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!
