BBQ Chicken Salad

For all those that attended our Ladylike Day at UCLA: Who remembers how great the food was from CPK? I found myself in hopes of re-creating their Barbeque chicken salad.

Here is a quick 15 minute easy recipe I found, so we all can re-create our favorite homemade barbeque chicken salad

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 boneless, skinless thin-sliced chicken breasts
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 6 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  • 1 Roma tomato, diced
  • 3/4 cup canned corn kernels, drained
  • 3/4 cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 1/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup Ranch dressing
  • 1/4 cup BBQ sauce
  • 1/4 cup tortilla strips

 

Instructions

  • Heat olive oil in a medium skillet over medium high heat.
  • Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper, to taste. Add to skillet and cook, flipping once, until cooked through, about 3-4 minutes per side. Let cool before dicing into bite-size pieces.
  • To assemble the salad, place romaine lettuce in a large bowl; top with chicken, tomato, corn, beans, onion and cheeses. Pour Ranch dressing and BBQ sauce on top of the salad and gently toss to combine. (I prefer Buttermilk Ranch dressing)
  • Serve immediately, topped with tortilla strips.
