Work was rough today.  My students were having rough days, I wasn’t feeling well, and we ended up having a lock in because of an armed robbery at a bank down the street.  The lock in had everyone in a panic so the entire day was just stressful.  Needless to say, the last thing I wanted to do when I got home was cook a complicated meal.

Boneless BBQ Chicken Salad

Whenever this happens I usually either make pasta or a salad with protein.  I had chicken defrosting in the refrigerator so chicken it was.  I usually grill or bake my chicken but after a stressful day I wanted my chicken fried so I made boneless BBQ chicken wings out of chicken breasts.  I fried them up, tossed them with an easy homemade BBQ sauce, and served them over fresh greens with ranch dressing.  Fresh, easy, and totally tasty!
