Chicken Marinade/BBQ Chicken Salad

This chicken marinade is so interesting. It has an oriental/bbq flavor. Jake declared it as amazing! Worth a try for sure.

Chicken Marinade

Adapted from Blue Cricket Design

6 Chicken breasts
One Cup Soy Sauce
One cup Vegetable Oil
And 1 1/2 cups Fresca Soda

That's it!!! Mix all that together and pour it over your Chicken in a bowl and let it marinate over night or for 4 plus hours! You won't be sorry! It's super simple and super delish!

Southwestern BBQ Chicken Salad

Adapted from Sister's Cafe

1/2 head Romaine lettuce, chopped
1/2 head Iceberg lettuce, chopped
1 can corn, drained
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 bunch green onions, chopped
1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped
4 Roma tomatoes, diced
2 Haas avocados, diced
shredded cheese, Mexican blend or cheddar
crispy tortilla strips

Stir shredded chicken in with the BBQ sauce until well coated. Of course you can use less or more sauce, it's up to you! I like quite a bit since I love the smoky flavor of BBQ sauce in a salad. Toss together the lettuce, cilantro, corn, beans, and chopped veggies. Top with shredded chicken, cheese and crispy tortilla strips. Drizzle ranch or cilantro lime dressing over salad and enjoy!

*to make crispy tortilla strips simply slice about 10 corn tortillas in narrow strips and place on cookie sheet. Spray with vegetable oil cooking spray and sprinkle generously with salt. Place under the broiler and let bake until crispy and brown around the edges.
