BBQ Chicken Chop Salad

I love me a good salad full of yummy ingredients! This one is exactly that. Mindy found it here quite a while ago and posted it on her own blog. Since then we've all fallen in love with it, and what better time to toss up a delicious salad than Springtime!!

What you'll need:

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 cup barbecue sauce

*Marinate chicken in barbecue sauce, then grill or bake or at 350 degrees for 30 minutes (marinating is preferred, but not necessary). Chop into bite size pieces and set aside.

1/2 head iceberg lettuce, chopped
1/2 head Romaine lettuce, chopped
3 Roma tomatoes, chopped
1 jicama, peeled and diced (Optional--we leave this out!)
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
1 (15-ounce) can black beens, drained and rinsed
1 cup frozen sweet corn, thawed
1/2 pound Monterey Jack cheese, grated

*You can combine chicken and salad ingredients in a large bowl and toss. Serve with Ranch Dressing, additional BBQ sauce and tortilla chips. You can also individually make each plate, like we prefer.
