My FAVORITE salad ever!

BBQ chicken salad

I’m sure many of you have tried a BBQ chicken salad at some point…but I have to say this is one of my favorite salads ever!! It’s definitely a close tie with Costa Vida’s sweet pork salad.
BBQ Chicken Salad


  • 3 chicken breasts
  • 1/2 bottle bbq sauce
  • lettuce
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 can corn
  • tomatoes
  • onion
  • cilantro
  • tortilla strips
  • ranch packet
  • tomatillo
  • lime


  1. 1. Put 3 chicken breast in crock pot with 1/4 in water. I probably pour about a 1/2 a bottle of bbq sauce over it. Just keep pouring... If I have onions I will put a few slices on top to give it a little more flavor. After it has cooked about 4 hours on high, I take the chicken out and shred it.
  2. 2. Then grab a can of corn and black beans and begin to warm. I put a spoonful of salsa over my beans and just salt on the corn.
  3. 3. Next comes the pico (I left out the jalapenos).
  4. 4. For my dressing I either use a ranch packet or use the pre-made stuff-depending on how lazy I am. I add in desired amount of cilantro, 1-2 tomatillos and 1/2 lime juiced. If you like spicy you can add in a jalapeno.
  5. 4. Then layer it all up.
Mmmm I think this needs to be on the menu this week!
