BBQ CHICKEN QUINOA SALAD

BBQ Chicken Quinoa Salad

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 1/2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 1/2 cup corn
  • 1/2 cup black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup shredded BBQ chicken
  • 1 avocado, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons White Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 2-4 tablespoons BBQ sauce
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • cilantro for garnish

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. In a large bowl, toss together the quinoa, corn, black beans, chicken and avocado. Season with salt and pepper
  2. Transfer mixture onto a bowl and top with shredded cheese, BBQ sauce, scallions and cilantro.
  3. Serve warm or at room temperature

Notes

This recipe calls for already cooked chicken so plan ahead! I prefer to cook my chicken in the crockpot, using 6 chicken thighs, 1 white onion sliced and 1/2 cup of BBQ sauce. I cook on low for about 6-7 hours and then shred and refrigerate for later.
