> > Southwestern Chicken Salad

Recipe Background

Thanks to Saree P. for submitting this recipe. This is a great recipe to use up left over BBQ chicken. You can also use left over or rotisserie chicken warmed in a pan with 2-3 Tablespoons of BBQ sauce. Instead of crushed lime tortilla chips, Saree recommends Fresh Gourmet tortilla strips which can often be found hanging on clips above the lettuce in the produce section of the grocery store.

Southwestern Chicken Salad

2 cups, pre-cooked, diced BBQ chicken
1-2 heads, romaine lettuce
2 tomatoes
1 cucumber
½ cup canned corn, drained well
½ cup black beans, rinsed and drained well
½ cup chick peas (optional)
Crushed lime tortilla chips
Ranch dressing

Chop lettuce, tomatoes, and cucumber. Add corn, beans and tortilla chips. Add warmed chicken. Top with shredded cheese and serve with ranch dressing

Make Ahead tip: All ingredients can be chopped ahead of time and assembled when ready to eat. If you are cooking chicken the night before make extra to use in this salad
