        What is for dinner - it is always the first thing out of my kids mouth when they get home from school.  It's so important to eat right and make healthy choices.  Today our children are faced with too many unhealthy choices throughout the day.  I really try to teach my kiddos to make healthy choices and try to balance their unhealthy choices.  An example of this is when they want to eat cookies and ice cream for dessert - we don't eat bread with our meal.  We try to eat real food prepared in a healthy way.  Last night, I knew I was going to make chicken but I had no idea what I was going to put with it.  So, I cooked the chicken breast with some Greek Seasoning sprinkled on it and sauteed it in a skillet.  Then I looked in the refrigerator and I realized we could have a delicious  BBQ Chicken Salad.

Here's the recipe:


4 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast

Greek Seasoning

Olive oil

Romaine Lettuce - wash and cut into bite size pieces

1 Tomato - diced

Cilantro - washed and chopped

Cheddar Cheese - 1 Tablespoon per salad

1 can Organic Corn - drain and wash

1 can Baked Beans - drain and wash

Crushed Blue Corn Chips - garnish


1/2 cup mayonnaise

1/2 cup BBQ Sauce

  • First you want to season the chicken breast and saute in a skillet with a little bit of olive oil.  Once the chicken is cooked - allow it to rest for 5 minutes, then slice it into strips.

  • Next wash and cut your lettuce - I usually have lettuce washed and ready to go in my refrigerator.

  • Make the Dressing - stir together the mayo and BBQ sauce

  • I used large pasta bowls for serving the salad.

  • Build the salad by first putting in lettuce, tomatoes, cilantro, cheddar cheese, corn, beans and then drip the dressing over the top of the salad.

  • Top the salad with the sliced chicken breast and garnish with cilantro and crushed blue corn chips.  You may want to drizzle a little BBQ sauce over the chicken.

NOTES:  You don't  have to use can corn and beans.  Frozen corn works great too!  I just used what was in my pantry.

I hope you enjoy this yummy salad :)
