BBQ Chicken Salad is a simple lunch or dinner. It is full of flavor and goes together in no time!
Are you looking for meals where meat is not the star of the recipe?
This salad is a great way to stretch meat in a meal.
BBQ Chicken Salad contains meat, as is obvious from the title, but it is mixed with coleslaw and sauce to make a delicious main dish salad.
BBQ Chicken Salad would also be a great dish for a potluck or picnic.
I had trouble coming up with the name for this. It contains cabbage and is similar to coleslaw, but since it contains bbq sauce and meat, it is also very different than coleslaw.
No matter what you call this it is a simple and delicious meal!
Most main dish salads contain lettuce, but cabbage is the star of this recipe. The coleslaw mix makes this easy to make and gives the salad a nice crunch.
It also holds up well for a day or two in the fridge, so it is a great make ahead recipe. You can make this and serve it right away or you can make it earlier in the day or the day before you serve it.
This salad is also gluten free as long as your bbq sauce does not contain gluten. It is normal food that just happens to be gluten free.
