BBQ Chicken Salad

The name of the blog where I got this recipe kind of says it all! :) Here is the link - BBQ Chicken Salad.

Rusty and I love salads! Surprisingly, so does Rylan. We always seem to get in a salad rut, though, so I love finding new salad recipes to try, and I love it even more when they are, um, damn delicious. ;) This recipe is very easy! It was perfect to put together on a week night after work.

*1 tblsp of olive oil
*2 chicken breasts, thinly sliced
*Salt & Pepper
*Romaine lettuce
*1 can of corn, drained
*1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed
*diced tomatoes
*Tortilla strips
*Grated cheddar cheese
*Your favorite BBQ sauce
*Your favorite ranch dressing

One ingredient not listed above that I will add next time is avocado. I LOVE avocado slices on a salad, and they would've gone well this one.

Heat the olive oil over medium heat. While the oil is heating, lightly salt and pepper the thinly sliced chicken breasts. Once the oil is hot, add chicken to the pan and cook 3-5 minutes on each side, or until no longer pink. Remove chicken from pan and dice. Serve over romaine lettuce, and top with as much or as little of the remaining ingredients as you desire!
