BBQ Chicken and Chipotle Salad

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Jangomango

This has to be the most requested recipe in my way-too-vast collection. It comes from Chiffonade Chef on the FC site, and she submitted it to Gourmet magazine some years ago. It was accepted and printed almost immediately. It's so easy, and so tasty, you will see why.

Oh my goodness, this salad was excellent. I served it at our 4th of July party. I doubled it and it still didn't last very long. I used KC Masterpiece BBQ sauce. Had a sweet-tangy overall flavor. A great recipe that I will use often. Thanks LLBunny.
