Grilled BBQ Chicken Salad

Pin It

This used to be one of my favorite meals during college. I don't know about all of you, but the "freshman 15" definitely knocked on my door and came to stay during my college days. Considering the dining hall was directly across the hall from my dorm room and they constantly had self-serve ice cream...well, that didn't really help.

When I finally moved off of campus and could finally make my own meals, this was a salad that I would make often. All the ingredients are fresh and healthy, and there's really no need for extra dressing since the combination is so flavorful. I would sometimes drizzle some extra BBQ sauce over top of the salad, but that's all it needs. Delicious I tell you! And it really worked as part of my diet! Well that and spending every day in the gym. But it worked! Enjoy :)

Here's the grilled chicken prior to slicing.

Delicious salad! 

Printable Recipe
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken cutlets
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • BBQ sauce
  • Lettuce
  • Corn, canned, heated through
  • Black beans
  • Roasted red peppers, sliced thin

Season chicken with salt and pepper and grill on one side. Flip to cook the other side and coat the cooked side with BBQ sauce. Once cooked through, flip the chicken to brown the BBQ sauce. Coat the other side with BBQ and flip to brown that side as well. Remove from grill and allow to cool slightly. Spread extra BBQ sauce over top.

While chicken is resting, layer lettuce, corn, black beans and roasted red peppers. Slice chicken and lay on top. Drizzle with additional BBQ sauce.
