BBQ Chicken Salad FINAL

Make sure to repin this recipe

I love a great BBQ Chicken Salad. There is just something about a tangy yummy BBQ chicken salad I can have at all times of the year. I thought it would be fun to show y’all my recipe for the BBQ salad that I make for my family on a weekly basis.

I am one of those people who loves to have a salad before dinner. No matter what the dinner is – I always love a nice fresh salad before hand and this is the one I make the most often

I really hope you enjoy it! Plus it is pretty frugal as well.

BBQ Chicken Salad Ingredients

This is everything you will need. For the chicken I use leftover chicken – what I do is take about 1 cup of leftover chicken and add in about 2 tablespoons of BBQ Sauce and mix it together and you have your BBQ Chicken.

For the dressing I do a mixture of BBQ Sauce and Ranch dressing – I do about 2 parts ranch dressing to BBQ Sauce – it is really what you like.

I make this dressing in a mason jar and then keep it in the fridge for about 1 month. Super simple and easy

BBQ Chicken Salad

What is your favorite type of salad? I personally love Chinese Chicken salads from a place called Chin Chin near where I use to live in Los Angeles.
