Honey barbecue crock pot chicken salad!
This is one of my favorite salads to prepare for lunch(and dinner!). The barbecue sauce, cheese and tomato provide enough flavor to allow you to skip the dressing, but it is heavenly with ranch! I always use this scrumptious recipe from stick a forkinit.blogspot to make my barbecue chicken in my crock pot.
It is the best BBQ chicken recipe I have ever used. I make it often and my boys love it which solidifies it as a staple meal in our home!(They are some finicky children if I may add)
You will need:
For the chicken
One bottle sweet baby ray's Honey BBQ sauce
4-6 boneless chicken breasts
1/4 C vinegar
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 C brown sugar
1 tsp garlic powder
Whisk the sauce ingredients together. Place your chicken in your crock pot coat with sauce and cook on low for 4-6 hours.
For the salad I used a combination of romaine lettuce, shredded sharp cheddar cheese, chopped fresh tomato, sliced sweet onion and topped it off with chopped up honey barbecue chicken.
I prefer to serve the chicken over the salad while it is warm.
It is delish with ranch dressing, so make sure you try it that way!
