I started making this salad for an easy lunch or dinner years ago after having one something like it at a restaurant named Grady's that is now closed. Adults and kids love it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil eggs and let them cool.
  2. Bake chicken tenders according to directions on package(I have also used leftover chicken in this).
  3. Tear or prepare lettuce as normal.
  4. Add cheese, tomato, and cucumber to lettuce.
  5. Cut chicken into bite size pieces and put into lettuce mixture.
  6. Dice eggs and add into mixture.
  7. Mix together ranch dressing and barbeque sauce(I use more than above since we love this dressing) and pour desired amount over salad.
  8. I do individual salads with this instead of mixing all together. The chicken tends to sink to the bottom.
  9. You can add whatever other veggies you want to it but my kids won't eat onions, peppers, etc so I skip them.

Yummy salad and quick to put together. I put the salad together in the time it took me to cook the chicken tenders then...voila! I will keep this in mind when I need something delicious, quick!

I'm on a gorge fest. Wish I could find a way to unembarrass myself.

We loved this! It was better than any restaurant fried chicken salad that I've ever had. I left out the croutons and the cucumber because I was out of them. The dressing was so simple and tasted great! I used Sweet Baby Ray's sweet onion sauce. Fantastic! Thanks so much for posting!
