Noodles & Company Backyard BBQ Chicken Salad Recipe

If you’re already missing the Backyard Barbecue Chicken Salad that was available at Noodles & Company this summer, they just posted the recipe on their blog so that you can make your own copycat version at home!  This recipe serves four as a main dish. (I simplified it a little from their posting.)


  • Bag of mixed lettuce (12 oz)
  • Bag of shredded mixed cabbage, red and green (8 pz)
  • ¾ cup cole slaw dressing
  • 4 chicken breasts – cooked, shredded, cooled
  • ½  cup BBQ sauce
  • ¾ cup diced tomatoes
  • ¾ cup corn
Prepare the chicken:
  • Bake 4 chicken breasts, completely cool and then shred into bite sized pieces(you could substitute a rotisserie chicken from the deli for this part)
  • Mix chicken and BBQ sauce
 Assemble salad:
  • Mix the lettuce, cabbage (reserve 1/8 cup of cabbage for garnish if desired) and cole slaw dressing in a large bowl
  • Place chicken, corn and tomatoes on top of the greens and garnish with remaining cabbage' About Chrysa
