BBQ Chicken Taco Salad


 
BBQ SALAD
 
This is a great salad for Kids. There are so many fun extras that were added to make this salad special. My son Nick absolutely loved it. The chicken that is shown on top was from a chicken cutlet dinner that I had made the previous night. All I did to make it BBQ was saute it in a pan with BBQ sauce for a few minutes and it absorbed all the great flavors. I forgot to take the picture with Salsa and Sour cream because my son likes it plain....hahah.....To me this dish is semi-homemade and weight watcher friendly This dinner is for a friendly Friday nigh,t no cook, use left overs, Dinner. Enjoy!
