Corn and tomatoes just couldn’t be sweeter this time of the year so I’m taking advantage as much as I can before Autumn arrives. Add some grilled chicken, light Ranch dressing and Raspberry Chipotle Grilling Sauce and you have the perfect meal!

At least once a year I go out to the outlets in Riverhead, and the Harry & David store is one of my stops. I’ve been using some of their grilling sauces for years, so when they asked me to develop a few recipes for their website, it was a no-brainer. You can swap the sauce for any BBQ sauce you may have on hand.

The other is this easy Slow Cooker Oregon Trail Pulled Pork which I served on a whole wheat bun, yum!

BBQ Chicken Salad

Easy, delicious and less than 15 minutes to make – the perfect end-of-summer salad bowl!

Ingredients:

  • 8 oz boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1/2 tsp reduced sodium Montreal Chicken Seasoning
  • cooking spray
  • 2 cups chopped Romaine lettuce
  • 2 small tomatoes, diced
  • 1 corn on the cobb with the husk
  • 2 tbsp Skinny Ranch Dressing (homemade or store bought)
  • 1 tbsp BBQ Sauce such as Harry & David Raspberry Chipotle

Directions:

  1. Season the chicken with Montreal chicken seasoning (or any seasoned salt). Cook chicken on a grill or grill pan sprayed with oil over medium heat for about 5 minutes on each side, or until the chicken is cooked through in the center. Transfer to a cutting board and slice thin.
  2.  Place the corn in the microwave for 4 minutes (or you can peel and boil in water for 5 minutes). Peel the husk off the corn, then cut the corn off the cobb. Divide the lettuce, tomatoes, corn and chicken on two plates, then drizzle with BBQ Sauce and dressing.
