Cowboy Salad

This was better than I thought it might be. Wasn’t sure about the barbecue sauce but it really wasn’t bad.

· 12 oz boneless, skinless chicken thighs
· 10 oz bag romaine lettuce
· ½ bag shredded iceberg lettuce
· 11 oz can tomatoes w/green chilies drained
· ½ c. cilantro, chopped
· 1 c. roasted corn kernels
· 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained
· ½ tsp cumin
· 1 tsp smoked paprika
· 1 tsp chili powder
· 1/3 cup light Ranch dressing
· 1/4 cup barbeque sauce

Preheat oven to 350^. Lay foil on cookie sheet and spray with cooking spray. Place chicken on foil and sprinkle with taco seasoning. Bake until juices run clear. Cool and dice. In a medium bowl, combine the tomatoes, cilantro, corn and black beans. Mix in the cumin, paprika and chili powder. Then add dressing and barbecue sauce. In a large bowl, combine the lettuces. Top with corn mixture and sprinkle cooked chicken over the top. Toss salad to combine.
