My husband rarely gets excited for salad. Unless it is my Keto Chinese Chicken Salad, or this Keto BBQ Chicken BLT Salad.

It is packed with so many delicious ingredients. A salad your guy will get excited about!

Keto BBQ Chicken BLT Salad

The star of this salad is the bbq chicken. I coat chicken breasts (chicken thighs would be amazing too!) in my homemade Keto BBQ Sauce that is seriously so good you would never guess it is very low carb. The BBQ sauce has double duty coating the chicken, and also being used in the dressing that is ranch mixed with BBQ sauce. Such a great combo!

I love grilling the chicken so it gets tons of flavor. Here in California we can grill year round. If you aren’t able to grill the chicken, I have oven roasted instructions in the recipe notes!

I love using lots of veggies to add tons of color to this salad. Red baby tomatoes, yellow bell pepper, green onions.

Add in some bacon and avocado and you’ve got SUCH a good salad for dinner!

Ingredients

BBQ Ranch Salad Dressing

BBQ Chicken BLT Salad


Instructions

BBQ Ranch Salad Dressing

  1. Combine both ingredients and stir to combine. Refrigerate until ready to use.

BBQ Chicken BLT Chopped Salad

  1. Heat your grill over medium high heat. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Brush both sides of the chicken with BBQ sauce.
  2. Grill the chicken and cook until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165º, about 10-15 minutes depending on the thickness of your chicken.
  3. Toss the romaine lettuce with desired amount of salad dressing. Toss to coat, then transfer dressed lettuce to plates.
  4. Top the lettuce with sliced BBQ chicken, chopped bacon, sliced tomatoes, avocado slices, bell pepper and green onions.

Notes

If you can’t grill your chicken, just roast the BBQ sauce coated chicken breasts on a parchment paper lined baking sheet in a 425º oven until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165º, about 10-15 minutes depending on the thickness of your chicken.

Boneless, skinless chicken thighs would be amazing in place of chicken breasts! Even better fat macros!

Could use red or white onion in place of green onions

Any color bell pepper would work! I prefer yellow to have a rainbow of colors in the salad.
