The Dish | BBQ Chicken Quinoa Salad

Let’s make the most of corn season before it ends with this 1-2-3- easy-peasy recipe that your kids will love. I suggest substituting a store-bought rotisserie chicken tossed with a little KC Masterpiece (my husband’s personal fave). You may want to double the recipe if more than 4 people.

  • 1 1/2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 1/2 cup fresh corn, cut from the cob
  • 1/2 cup black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup shredded BBQ chicken 
  • 1 avocado chopped
  • 3-4 tablespoons White Cheddar cheese, shredded (you can also use Cotija)
  • BBQ sauce 
  • 2 scallions, chopped (I skip, so my kids will eat it)
  • Cilantro for garnish (optional)
  • In a large bowl, toss together the quinoa, corn, black beans, chicken and avocado. Season with salt and pepper
  • Transfer mixture onto a serving bowl and top with shredded cheese, BBQ sauce drizzle, scallions and cilantro.
