BBQ Chicken Quinoa Salad
Recipe Type: Salad
Prep time: 5 mins
Cook time: 10 mins
Total time: 15 mins
Serves: 2-4
1 cup cooked quinoa
1/2 cup corn
1/2 cup black beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup shredded BBQ chicken
1 avocado, chopped
2 tbsp White Cheddar cheese, shredded
2-4 tbsp BBQ sauce
2 scallions, chopped
cilantro for garnish
In a large bowl, toss together the quinoa, corn, black beans, chicken and avocado. Season with salt and pepper
Transfer mixture onto a bowl and top with shredded cheese, BBQ sauce, scallions and cilantro.

*Note: this recipe calls for already cooked chicken so plan ahead! I prefer tocook my chicken in the crockpot, using 6 chicken thigh, 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.
