Creamy BBQ Dressing:


  • In a plastic bag, combine chicken and 1 c. BBQ sauce.
  • Seal tightly and refrigerate for at least an hour.
  • Remove chicken from bag, discard marinade, and grill chicken on BBQ grill until cooked through.
  • Use remaining BBQ sauce to slather over chicken while grilling.
  • When internal temperature of chicken reaches 165, remove from grill and set aside.
  • In a large serving bowl, toss romaine with corn, black beans, and green onions.
  • After chicken has had a chance to rest for a few minutes, slice and put on the salad.
  • Top with shredded cheese and tortilla chips.
  • Serve with Creamy BBQ Dressing (See below).
  • For the dressing, combine all the ingredients together and whisk vigorously to combine.
  • You could also run this through a blender to make it even more smooth.
  • Refrigerate until ready to serve.
