 Ingredients

  • 1 cup frozen corn, thawed
  • 1 can black beans, rinsed well
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 1/4 cup red onion, chopped small
  • 3 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 3-4 chicken breasts, sliced thin to cook faster
  • 1.5 cups BBQ sauce, plus more for garnish
  • Grape tomatoes
  • Spring mix salad
  • Ranch dressing

Directions 

  1. Chop the red onion, drain and rinse the black beans, roughly chop the cilantro, and nuke the corn for a minute if you need to thaw it.
  2. Combine the corn, black beans, onion, lime juice, salt, and pepper. Cover and place in the fridge.
  3. Stovetop: Slice the chicken breasts thin so they’ll cook faster and remain moist. Pat dry and lightly season with salt and pepper. - Drizzle a tablespoon of olive oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook until no longer pink (about 5 minutes on each side).
    • Crockpot: Place chicken breasts in a slow cooker with salt, pepper, and 1.5 cups of BBQ sauce. Cook on low for 6 hours.
  4. Shred chicken. If cooking on the stovetop, add the chicken back to the pan and toss with BBQ sauce.
  5. Assemble the salad with lettuce, tomatoes, chicken, and corn & bean salsa. Drizzle with ranch if desired.
