BBQ Chicken Salad Recipe

This BBQ Chicken Salad recipe is loaded with flavor and crunch! Juicy baked BBQ chicken and creamy ranch dressing tie together vegetables for a perfect summer entrée.

What You Need

Add all BBQ sauce ingredients to a  bowl and whisk. Then add chicken, and toss to coat. Place chicken in a large baking dish, pour remaining BBQ sauce on top and bake uncovered at 400°F for 25 minutes. Remove from oven, cover with tinfoil, rest for 5-10 minutes, then cut into bite-size pieces.


In a separate small bowl, add all ranch dressing ingredients and stir to combine.


In a large salad bowl, toss in the lettuce, black beans, corn, tomatoes, cucumber, cilantro and red onion.


Pour some dressing on top and gently mix to combine. I like to lightly drizzle the dressing to make sure all the flavors in the BBQ chicken salad stand out. You can always add more dressing later.


Make Ahead

Refrigerate salad ingredients separately from the dressing covered with plastic wrap for up to 2 days. Dressing in a jar can be refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.
