BBQ Chicken Quinoa Salad

  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1/2 cup frozen or fresh corn, thawed
  • 1/2 cup black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup shredded chicken, cooked
  • 4 Tbsp barbeque sauce of your choice
  • 1 avocado, chopped
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Cilantro, as garnish

Cook quinoa according to package directions.  Note: I pre-cooked my chicken in a slow cooker the day before with chopped onion and some BBQ sauce - make sure to plan ahead.  
In a large bowl, mix together quinoa, corn, black beans, chicken and barbeque sauce.  Fold in avocado, green onions and season with salt and pepper.  Top with a bit of cilantro and enjoy!
