    This has recently become my new favorite lunch. I make a single serving for myself and it so easy and tastes SO good. I use light ranch dressing and Stubbs Original BBQ Sauce to make this healthier and WW friendly with only 4 points on the Blue plan. And to make this super fast if you don't have leftover chicken, I get a package of grilled cooked chicken in the freezer section of the grocery store. Just thaw and use. It's filling, easy, and delicious! This would make a great lunch to pack and take with you, just pack the dressing separately.
