Chopped Barbeque Chicken Salad

This salad is a perfect use for leftover Barbeque chicken. In fact, whenever we do make BBQ chicken on the grill, I always add a few extra chicken breasts so that we can have this salad the following day. If you're fresh out of BBQ chicken, just pick up a roasted chicken from the deli.


I always use bottled Catalina dressing for this salad. The flavor complements the southwestern salad ingredients and the BBQ chicken perfectly.


1 can black beans, drained and rinsed

2 c cooked, chopped chicken (BBQ chicken if you've got it)

1 cup corn kernels

1 c chopped green pepper

broken tortilla chips

(Available at the grocer's in the produce section is a product

put out by 'Fresh Gourmet' called 'Tortilla Strips' and they

work great for this salad if you can find them)

sliced radishes ( it's a matter of taste - I added them )

1/2 c chopped red onion or chopped green onions - your choice.

1 cucumber peeled, seeded and chopped

1 large tomato, cored, seeded and chopped

3 heads of Romaine lettuce cleaned and chopped

Combine and toss chicken, vegetables and salad greens. Right before serving, toss salad with dressing and tortilla chips.
