    Excellent! Because of previous reviews, only used 2 tbsp of sugar for dressing and it was perfect. The barbeque sauce was much spicier than I anticipated, but in a good way. Didn't feel like making the croutons so used some crunchy Chinese noodles instead. I felt this recipe made more than enough salad dressing and barbecue sauce. I used the leftover dressing in a romaine/mandarin orange/scallion salad and used the barbecue sauce on grilled salmon. Excellent results.

    Delicious!!! I will def make this again. The chicken was moist and flavorful. I used a tiny bit of dressing because it had a bit much of sugar (but was delicious). I also added broccoli slaw (from trader joes) which gave it a nice crunch.

    Yummy, yummy, yum! This salad was great. I loved the poppy seed dressing (so easy to make, too). I enjoyed the barbecue sauce (again, so easy to make). I skipped the croutons this time, but might make them next time. This chicken was fabulous. I actually grilled them on the Foreman grill because SOMEONE forgot to get a propane refill for the big grill. The dressing and sauce was made as directed, and I don't believe I would change a thing. As a side note, my DS didn't want the salad so he had the chicken with a side of steamed rice, and added more sauce to it. He ate 2 breasts, so I'm assuming he enjoyed it. Will most definitely make this again, and thanks for posting!
