Fried Chicken Cobb Salad

Salad has got to be my FAVORITE food. I love always trying different salad recipes. This one is pretty quick because the chicken is just bout right in the store. And for those of you who's husband's don't like salad, give this one a try I bet they will like it! I usually make these with grilled steaks, and baked potatoes. But they can also make for a great lunch time meal just by themselves!

1 head iceberg lettuce, rinsed/dried

1 lb. deli popcorn chicken

12 cherry tomatoes, quartered

1 avocado, pitted, peeled, and cut into chunks

1/2 cucumber, peeled, seeded, chopped

4 slices of pre-cooked bacon, heated and chopped (I don't usually re-heat mine again once I have cooked it)

1/2 c. deli blue cheese crumbles

1/2 ranch dressing

1/2 c. BBQ sauce

1. Prepare salad bowl by cutting stem end off head of lettuce; cut the head into four wedges and remove some of the center leaves to create individual salad bowls. Place each "salad bowl" in a shallow dinner. glass bowl

2. Evenly divide chicken pieces and sprinkle over lettuce

3. Sprinkle evenly with tomatoes, avocado, cucumber and bacon

4.Cover each bowl loosely and chill until ready to serve.

5.To prepare dressing, mix ranch dressing and BBQ sauce together.

6.Drizzle dressing over top of each salad and sprinkle tops with 2 Tbsp. each of blue cheese, serve immediately.
