Barbecue Chicken Salad

From a previous posting you know that I have a deep abiding love for Barbecue sauce so this posting should not be a shocker.   Today I bring you Barbecue Chicken Salad!!!  Forget boring old Chicken Salad and hop aboard its counterpart Barbecue Chicken Salad!

Choo Choo!

I never knew chicken salad could taste this good until I took a bite of this piece of manna from heaven.  Barbecue Chicken Salad is great by itself, as a sandwich, with crackers, on toast points, fruit …. It is just yums!

Never thought about Barbecue Chicken Salad if I had never worked for Kroger’s Grocery Store but I did and the thought was conceptualized – so thank you Kroger’s.  To make this Barbecue Chicken Salad I recommend a thick, sweet, and savory type of Barbecue Sauce.  I used Jack Daniel’s Honey Smokehouse instead of my beloved Canadian Club Honey Garlic since I am getting low on the sauce. I hope you will enjoy this dish as much as I do – it really is a perfect summer dish!

Barbecue Chicken Salad
4 cups of chicken breast, chopped
½ cup green peppers, diced
½ cup Vidalia Onion, diced
¼ teaspoon chopped garlic
½ cup low fat mayonnaise
¾ cup Barbecue Sauce
1 teaspoon of low fat sour cream
2 dashes of Worcestershire Sauce
dash of salt and pepper

Directions: In a large mixing bowl add all ingredients and mix with a spoon until thoroughly combined.  (I would recommend preparing a day ahead in order to allow all the ingredients to marry and have a fantastic union.)

I told you it was simple! Until next time …

BBQ Chicken Dip

Are you looking for a quick and oh so delicious appetizer to serve to many?!?  Then look no further!  Barbecue Chicken Dip is a hands down crowd pleaser – at least in my office it is.

This dish is my take on the ever popular Buffalo Chicken Dip.  I simply omitted the Buffalo Sauce and added my favorite Barbecue sauce.

My favorite Barbecues Sauce hails from Canada.  I discovered Canadian Club Barbecue Sauce over a year ago at the Toronto’s Womens Show and now I need to visit Canada at least three or four times so I can stock up – I am totally not kidding.  I bought five bottles when I went visiting last month and my stock is already getting low. I have yet to find a good American counterpart and I am open to suggestions.

12 oz. pkg. Reduced Fat cream cheese, softened

3/4 cup Ranch Salad Dressing

1 1/4 cup BBQ Sauce of Choice

Preheat your oven to 350°F. In a casserole dish add chicken, cream cheese, ranch dressing, barbecue sauce, and 1 cup of monterey jack/colby cheese. Cover with foil. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove foil, stir mixture until evenly blended. Add the remainder of cheese. Return dip to the oven for an additional 2 minutes to melt cheese topping.

Serve with your favorite tortilla chips, pita chips, crackers and ENJOY!

* You can use any type chicken you prefer;rotisserie chicken, canned chicken or in my case I simply baked skinless boneless chicken breasts with my favorite seasoning.
