Instructions
  1. Heat olive oil in a medium skillet over heat. Add in the chicken and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Stir the chicken occasionally until cooked through about 4-5 minutes. Turn off the heat and stir in 3 tablespoons of bbq sauce. Allow to cook while you assemble the salad.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, ranch dressing, bbq sauce, lemon juice, and pepper. Set aside.
  3. You can assemble the salad into 4 individual bowls or in one large bowl. Place romaine lettuce, in the bowl, top with chicken, tomatoes, corn, avocado and onions. Then pour dressing over the salad and toss until combined. We love adding broken tortilla chips to our salad!
