BBQ Chicken Salad


1 lb. boneless, skinless Chicken Breast Tenders Sliced into thin strips
1/2 cup BBQ Sauce
10 oz. Mixed Salad Greens
1 medium diced tomato
1/4 cup freshly shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup light ranch salad dressing

In a small skillet cook sliced chicken tender in 1 tsp olive oil until cooked throughout. Add BBQ sauce to skillet and continue to cook until chicken is coated and sauce is warm. Set Aside.
Place mixed salad greens into a bowl and add diced tomatoes and shredded cheddar cheese. Top with BBQ Chicken and serve with ranch dressing.
Serves 4-6 people.

When making this dish I personally use Sweet Baby Rays Honey BBQ sauce. I suggest using you own personal favorite. Some people like their BBQ sauce spicy, some like it mild and some like it sweet so personalize your salad to your personal taste. Also make sure you are using plenty of leafy lettuce because it contains more nutrients than iceberg. Sometimes I add some raw spinach too. You can also make other healthy additions like carrots, red onions or red peppers. Lastly if you like to add some Zing to your salad try substituting light bleu cheese salad dressing for the ranch.

I love this salad because it is packed with flavor and nutrients and the chicken makes it feel like a meal instead of a rabbit snack. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Bon Apetite!!
