If you enjoy Monterey Chicken, you are going to LOVE this Jacked-Up Monterey Chicken Salad! It’s quick, easy and perfect for a wholesome weeknight dinner!
I’m sure you have noticed that I have a thing for salads this summer. Really though, what is not to love?! They’re easy, the flavor combinations are endless and most of them are loaded with lean proteins and tons of veggies! Oh, and did I mention that they’re easy?!
I think the fact that they are so easy (and delicious!) is one of the biggest reasons that dinner salads have become a staple for my family this summer. I’m going to be honest, it’s been too hot here in Phoenix to be too excited about cooking much of anything …. but a person still has to eat – and if you have a family, they expect food on a regular basis! Hehehe. Unless it is something that can be cooked on the grill or something that won’t heat up the house, it’s just not happening right now. Cooking on the grill keeps our house cool and let’s be honest, the flavor just can’t be beat!
Are you familiar with Monterey Chicken? It’s a grilled or baked chicken breast that is topped with BBQ sauce, cheese, tomatoes, green onions, and bacon! If you haven’t every tried it – you must! I hope to have the recipe up for just the Monterey Chicken on the blog soon – but for now, let’s just go with this Jacked-Up Monterey Chicken Salad! It has all of the same yummy ingredients as the traditional Monterey Chicken, just deconstructed in a salad!
I love that Walmart and Kraft have all of our grilling and dinner needs for less! I also love that this Jacked-Up Monterey Chicken Salad comes together in the time it takes to cook the chicken on the grill – that’s less than 20 minutes, y’all! With the help of some of my favorite Kraft products and Walmart’s Marketside brand, I easily created a new family-favorite dinner that was fuss-free and perfect for a hectic night! Or a not-so-hectic night! 🙂
Using ingredients like Kraft cheese, Oscar Mayer bacon, Kraft salad dressing, and Kraft BBQ sauce paired with a few fresh ingredients in my local Walmart’s produce section from the Marketside brand such as Pico de Gallo, chopped green onions and organic salad made this Jacked-Up Monterey Chicken Salad quick and easy … and delicious!
