Healthy BBQ Chicken Salad
The grill is in full use this year already and I'm loving it! One of my favorite flavors in the world is grilled chicken so I thought that I would make a Grilled BBQ Chicken Salad with corn, black beans, tomatoes and peppers for my family for dinner one night. It comes together quickly and is super flavorful and family friendly!

Grilled BBQ Chicken Salad
The kids loved this Grilled BBQ Chicken Salad and it is totally going to be a staple in our house all summer long. We will probably switch up a couple of ingredients here and there because I'm always trying new recipes but the basis of this salad will stay the same. Grilled chicken, beans, veggies, etc. Lots of flavorful and nutritious toppings that make this a complete meal that is ready in 15 minutes or so.

Barbecue Grilled Chicken Salad
For the grilled barbecue chicken salad, I knew that black beans, corn, the BBQ chicken, tomatoes and bell peppers would go together so well. You can feel free to use either fresh corn or frozen corn for this recipe. If you happen to have corn on the cob on hand, throw some on the grill while your chicken is cooking and slice it off the cob for a delicious grilled corn flavor.

For the dressing, I decided that we needed even more barbecue sauce and mixed together a light ranch dressing and Hunt’s Cherry Chipotle BBQ Sauce. This sauce is affordable and comes in three different flavors at Walmart: hickory pepper, mesquite molasses and cherry chipotle.

All delicious and great for different flavor combinations all summer long.

The Hunt's BBQ sauce is awesome on the chicken as well. I brushed it on the chicken before putting it on the grill and added more before the chicken was done cooking. My kids can't get enough of this barbecue sauce lately. They love it on eggs as crazy as that may seem!

Hunt's BBQ sauce
These BBQ sauces have a great smoky flavor and are perfect for grilling, dipping or topping a variety of foods. One thing that I love is that they have no high fructose corn syrup like most BBQ sauces do.
