BBQ Chicken Salad

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by MizEmerilLagasse

This is just one of those recipes I threw together one day because there just wasn't a whole lot of good things to eat in the house, and I was really hungry. It turned out great, and now I have another healthy recipe to share.

I used this recipe to make a "true" chicken salad. First, I doubled the recipe, leaving out the greens, cucumber, and bacon. Then I diced the chicken small, (I used leftover grilled chicken breasts), and mixed it with the mayo/bbq sauce mixture. I let it sit the fridge for a few hours to really let the flavors blend. The tomatoes and cheese were added just before serving. I used toasted thick sliced bread to make sandwiches. Awesome!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper; grill, bake, or pan fry the chicken, and set aside to rest.
  2. Place the salad greens on a large plate or two separate plates.
  3. Sprinkle on the onion, cucumber, tomato, and bacon bits, and set aside.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, BBQ sauce, vinegar, and salt and pepper, and set aside.
  5. Slice the chicken into strips and set them both on top of the salad greens or place one breast onto individual plates.
  6. Sprinkle with cheese and pour on the dressing.
