BLT Chicken Salad

Featuring all the fun fixings for a BLT chicken sandwich, this salad is so lovable. I can prep the ingredients ahead of time and just throw it together at the last minute. Barbecue sauce in the dressing gives it unexpected flavor. Even picky eaters love my chicken salads. —Cindy Moore, Mooresville, North Carolina

    This is delicious. I subbed turkey bacon but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. This was a great meal on a hot night.

    Absolutely superb! I was a little surprised to see BBQ sauce in the dressing, but it was so darned good! Don’t cheat yourself by subbing bottled dressing!

    Very good! I make a similar salad, but add some drained rinsed black beans and fresh corn kernels (you can sub frosen thawed corn or risned canned cor too). The dressing I use is a quickie of ranch, bbq sauce and a bit of lemon juice to wake everything up. Yummy!!!!

    I made this over the past summer a couple of times and it is so good. Flavors are on point. It's perfect for a two person house cause you can adjust the ingredient size to your household.

    I served this along side soup on a rainy night. No leftovers were to be found. We did need a tad more dressing as I probably used more than 8 cups of greens. I'd probably use only about 1 pound of chicken and few slices of bacon next time.

    My husband and I love this dinner salad. I make it at least once a month. I use a rotisserie chicken from the market instead of the chicken breast.

    This was very good. We love salads. The only change I made was not putting bacon in this. We are not bacon eaters. I would make this again. Thanks for the recipe.

    Delicious! We used prepared chicken salad and added BBQ sauce to the mix, topped with avocado and it was a hit. The best salad for salad week yet!!

    Delicious! The only substitutes I made were turkey instead of chicken, and whole grape tomatoes for chopped tomatoes.

    This was fabulous! The whole family raved about it. We added avocado and shredded cheese. My daughter did not like the dressing but she was fine with table dressing.
