Nice meal on a hot and humid day. I didn't have a platter big enough to hold everything as pictured, so I used a 9x13 pan to serve it, putting the chicken down through the middle.

This was delicious and packed with great flavor. I served this with a choice of ranch dressing or blue cheese. My husband loves bread and could not resist putting this salad in a pita pocket!This is great no matter how you eat it! I will be making this again soon!

Great salad but my chicken was so tender that it didn't cut up in chunks. It shredded instead. I might try to cut up my chicken first before I put it in the crock pot.

I really enjoyed this salad. Fresh and tasty. I drizzled with a light vinegrett dressing.

I modified this recipe slightly, I used leftover roasted split chicken breasts and added the bbq/spice mixture. I'm always on the lookout for delicious salads...this fit the bill!

I love this recipe. When I make cobb salad I always poach my chicken. It turnes out dry and not much flavor. This has amazing flavor with little effort !!!!!
