BBQ Chicken Quinoa Salad


BBQ Chicken Quinoa Salad (slightly adapted from What’s Gaby Cooking)


  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1 can sweet corn, drained
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 – 1 1/2 cup chicken breast, shredded and tossed in BBQ sauce (amount up to you!)
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1/2 cup sliced black olives
  • 1 avocado, chopped
  • 1/4 cup shredded white cheddar cheese
  • BBQ sauce for drizzling on top
  • 2 – 3 scallions, chopped



In a large bowl, toss chicken and BBQ sauce. Then add quinoa, corn, black beans, tomato, black olives, scallions and avocado. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer mixture into serving bowls and drizzle BBQ sauce over top. Then top with shredded cheese (it also recommends cilantro which I totally forgot to do but would definitely be a good addition). Serve warm or at room temperature.


Results: AMAZING…definitely making this one again 🙂
