This BBQ Chicken Salad was another dish I made with the large batch of BBQ crock pot chicken I made at the beginning of the week that I also used for this BBQ Chicken Pizza. I love when I can prep things ahead of time to be used for multiple recipes during the week.

How to make BBQ Chicken Salad
To make my BBQ chicken in the crock pot I just load up the crock pot with chicken breasts (usually 4-6 pounds at a time) and add our favorite BBQ sauce- Sweet Baby Ray’s. Then I cook it on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours. Shred it up, let it cool and store it in the refrigerator.
Once the chicken is ready this salad is simple to put together and would be great for lunch or dinner. For this recipe, the amounts posted in the recipe would be for one serving and could be easily doubled, tripled, etc. It would certainly be a crowd pleaser!
