How to make this Air Fryer BBQ Chicken Salad Recipe
A BBQ salad kit provided the help I was looking for, love the salad topping and dressing packet included.
Plus the frozen chicken tenders were a must have EASY ingredient.
Place some frozen tenders and a few slices of bacon in the air fryer basket.
Then set the air fryer to 380 degrees for 12 to 14 minutes.
While the air fryer was doing it’s thing, I assembled two salad kits.
One for my lunch, and the other I meal prepped for tomorrow.
See… perfectly cooked bacon and crispy chicken.
I added some cheese along with the topping packet that came with the salad kit.
Then diced the chicken and bacon and added to my salads.
Proof, my friends, that if I can make this gorgeous and tasty salad for my lunch with two toddlers, you can do it too 😉
