  BBQ Chicken Salad with Tortilla Strips and Healthy Ranch

– 2 ears of corn
– 1 avocado, diced
– 1/3 cup cilantro, chopped
– 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
– ½ red onion, diced
– Barbeque Sauce (for chicken)
– 2 Persian cucumbers, sliced
– Corn Tortillas
– Lawry’s Season Salt
– ½ cup Greek yogurt
– 1/3 cup Cilantro Dressing
– 2 Tablespoon barbecue sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 315ᴼ.  Cut corn tortillas in strips.  Place on a cookie sheet, spray with Pam and add Lawry’s Season Salt.  Cook for about 20 minutes or until crispy like chips.
  2. Heat the barbecue to medium-high heat.  Add boneless chicken breasts.
  3. Put the corn on the grill.   Keep the husks on, so it roasts the kernels without burning it.
  4. While the chicken and corn are cooking, plate the chopped romaine.  Add tomatoes, avocado, cilantro, tortilla strips and red onions.
  5. With about 8 minutes left on the chicken, add barbecue sauce to the chicken.  Flip the chicken after 4 minutes and add sauce to the other side.
  6. To make the dressing: combine, Greek yogurt, cilantro dressing and barbecue sauce.
  7. Remove the chicken and corn from the grill.  Remove the corn kernels from the core and place on the salad.
  8. Slice the chicken breast and add to the top of the salad.  Add dressing.
  9. You my friend, are ready to serve!

BBQ Chicken Pizza


Friday Night Pizza night!

T.W.O. had some leftover chicken in the refrigerator, so why not make a BBQ Chicken Pizza?!



– Pizza Dough
– Cornmeal
– Flour
– Chicken breast, shredded
– BBQ sauce
– 1/2 cup olives, sliced
– 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
– 1/4 cup cilantro, diced
– 1/2 cup red onions, diced
– 2-3 cups mozzarella

Roll out the pizza dough on a floured/ cornmeal surface. Once the dough is evenly rolled out, transfer the dough to the pizza stone. Next take the BBQ sauce and spread it on the dough, making sure you reach all the edges.


Then, add your mozzarella! Take the sliced olives, mushrooms, cilantro and red onions and spread it on the cheese. In a bowl, mix the shredded chicken breast and BBQ sauce. Once mixed, put the chicken on the pizza.


 Let the pizza rise for about 15 minutes while the BBQ is heating up. Note – you don’t want to put the stone on a cold BBQ. The temperature should reach a medium-high heat before placing the pizza on. Watch the pizza closely; you don’t want your crust to burn! It should take about 15-20 minutes, depending on your grill.



Bon Appetite!
