We are continuing to try the recipes found in Chris and Heidi Powell's "Extreme Transformation" book and today we tried barbecue chicken salad. It was a very tasty meal with only a few tweaks. Instead of boneless, skinless chicken breasts, we used boneless, skinless chicken thighs. Here is what we did (this recipe made three bowls) :
Three boneless, skinless chicken thighs cooked
Three tbsp low-sodium barbecue sauce
Four cups romaine lettuce, chopped
3/4 cup black beans
3/4 cup fresh corn
1/4 cup fat-free plain Greek yogurt
One tbsp ranch dressing mix
One tsp lime juice
Three extra tbsp barbecue sauce
Cut up cooked pieces of chicken thighs and mix with three tbsp barbecue sauce. Build your lettuce, beans, corn, and chicken.
Mix Greek yogurt, ranch dressing mix, lime juice together. Spoon one tbsp on top of each bowl, Add more barbecue sauce if needed. Top with cilantro.
The chicken thighs were very good in this dish! Try it for a good lunch one day.
