Ingredients

  • 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • cups prepared barbecue sauce
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • FOR SALAD:
  • 3 hearts Romaine lettuce, rinsed then chopped
  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 bag (10 ounces) frozen corn, cooked
  • 1 cup sliced cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup shredded Colby Jack cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/2 cup cilantro chopped
  • TOPPINGS:
  • Tortilla strips
  • Barbecue sauce
  • Salad dressing of choice (I love to use ranch dressing)

Instructions

  • Place chicken breasts in a greased insert of a medium to large crock pot. Season with just a bit of salt and pepper. Cover with lid and cook on low heat for 3 to 4 hours, or until chicken is thoroughly cooked.
    Carefully remove chicken from crock pot and place in a large bowl. Shred chicken with two forks.
    Pour barbecue sauce over the chicken and toss to coat chicken in sauce.
  • To assemble the salad, place chopped romaine lettuce in a very large salad bowl OR in individual bowls. Top with barbecue chicken, beans, corn, tomato, cheese, onion and cilantro.
    Top salad with tortilla strips, more barbecue sauce (if desired) and dressing of choice. Gently toss to combine. Serve and enjoy!
