BBQ Chicken salad

I’ve seen an abundance of pre-made salads all over Pinterest, so I thought I’d give it a shot with my own recipe.  It’s rather simple, and rather delicious.  I made enough for two servings.  One to test out, freshly made, and one to try later on my busy days when I don’t have much time to prepare a lunch for myself.




  • 1 cup cooked shredded chicken breast
  • 2 tbs BBQ sauce
  • 1/2 medium avocado
  • 2 slices day old bread
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 2 tbs dry ranch mix
  • 2 cups lettuce
  • 1/2 cup ranch dressing


Heat a cast iron skillet and drizzle with olive oil.  While that warms up, cube your bread.  Toss the cubed bread pieces in the oiled pan making sure each piece coats evenly.  Sprinkle on dry ranch mix.  Heat until bread is toasted and you’ve got homemade ranch croutons!  Set croutons aside.  In the same skillet, throw in chicken and BBQ sauce.  Turn until coated.  In a mason jar (or two if you plan on just prepping), divide ranch dressing, chicken, cubed avocado, lettuce and top with croutons.  Seal and save or shake it up and dig in!  I ate my second serving a few days later, and it was still as yummy as my fresh plate.  Enjoy!
