Corn and tomatoes just couldn’t be sweeter in the summer months. Add some grilled chicken, light Ranch dressing and BBQ Sauce and you have the perfect meal! I prefer to make my Ranch from scratch but of course, to save time you can buy it bottled.

This BBQ Chicken Salad is easy, delicious and takes less than 15 minutes to make – the perfect 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, I used Harry & David Raspberry Chipotle

Instructions

  • 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.
  •  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.

  1. This was so good. I love how you make eating healthy so easy for me

  2. Yum. Cannot wait to make this BBQ salad. I’m in a salad rut so this will be a welcome change !!

  3. I can’t wait to start, but I cannot find the organized grocery list. Is it for the whole week of recipes ?

  4. Why cook the corn in the microwave? I always throw my corn ,with the husk on, on the grill and grill for about 10 – 15 minutes, turning the corn over every few minutes or so. By grilling the corn you get a truly flavorful corn.

  5. I love your recipes, but why won’t you let people pin your recipes to Pinterest anymore?  I really miss being able to pin them!

  6. Yummy! My husband loves it too!

  7. This was a super easy salad.  Loved everything about it! I’ve never cooked corn in the microwave, but I’ll be doing that from now on!

  8. I love, love, love this salad

  9. I made this exactly per the recipe and it’s amazing.  It’s just so flavorful and filling.  I used a honey habanero BBQ and loved it.  I also used the dressing from the jarred cobb salad recipe so that I could double it and pack some lunches.

  11. I made three days of lunches and it was super easy! I made a few tweaks. I was able to pick up a bag of the Dole Southwestern mix at the grocery store and for $3 I made that my base of lettuce – which was PERFECT and so easy! I also added chopped cilantro, black beans and some cheddar cheese. SO FILLING and satisfying and I can’t wait to have it again!

  12. Made this for lunc today and it was super easy. I used a different bbq sauce and OPA ranch dressing. So good:) mine came to 7 sp. 

  13. Can we use the raspberry grilling sauce as a marinade on the chicken before we grill it?? I’ve never used that before but it sounds delish!

  16. Excellent! Added black beans and cilantro as suggested by Kristin. Used Roberts Reserve Raspberry Chipotle Sauce. My wife loved it.

  17. I made this last night to pack for both my husband and my work lunches. We're both on weight watchers and it was bout 6 points for him but only 3 for me (I used less chicken.) It was amazing! He actually called me at work to tell me how much he loved it. When I first saw the picture, I thought the tomatoes were strawberries, and I went with that thought when I assembled the salad. I used both tomatoes AND strawberries and for whatever reason, it totally worked. Thanks for the awesome recipe; we'll be working this into our lunch rotation weekly!

  33. Love this! Raspberry in BBQ sauce sounds intriguing; I bet it's amazing! And sweet corn is always a great addition to salads. I always keep some frozen and throw it in when I start making a salad–perfectly thawed by the time I'm ready to eat!
