Barbecue Chicken Salad #WeekdaySupper #McSkilletSauce

Hi Everyone,

I teamed up with #WeekdaySupper to share with you a week’s worth of tasty, quick meals that is sure to please the palate and the belly.  Today I have for you a super simple, flavorful salad that is loaded with chicken, black beans, corn and McCormick’s Smoky Applewood BBQ Chicken with Bacon Skillet Sauce.  Amazing!  No dressing needed with this salad.

This salad took less than 15 minutes to make and tastes out of this world. It has a nice smoky southwestern flavored barbecue sauce with hints of bacon. Oh you know me and bacon! To zip up my salad and to keep going with the southwestern flavors I decided to add a little bit of black beans and corn. Black beans and corn are a perfect complement to this salad. But you know what? Skip the lettuce and add it to a flour tortilla and you have some awesome tacos! I did that the next night with my leftovers. I added a pinch of hot sauce and sour cream and oh man was it good!!

Have you tried McCormick’s Skillet Sauces? I love the Smoky Applewood BBQ Chicken with Bacon Skillet Sauce. It has a sweet, smoky flavor with a slight onion flavor and hints of wonderful bacon. This would also make for a great simple chicken dinner, sided with a salad and maybe some potato salad.
