Recipe: Budweiser Buffalo Chicken Salad

Recently I was shipped a giant box of Budweiser Sauces and Marinades - yes - Budweiser! Who knew they had sauces and marinades? They've got BBQ sauces, marinades, steak sauces - so much good stuff!!! I wanted to create a recipe with these and enjoy some delicious food! 

I loved everything they sent but the Buffalo Chicken marinade caught my eye - so I created my very own Buffalo Chicken Salad! Crispy and crunchy with just the right amount of spice - yum! 

The reason the marinade caught my eye was the bag itself! It's a large foil pack ziploc bag with the marinade already inside. You just tear it open above the zipper and add your meat - then zip and in the fridge it goes! How easy and NOT MESSY is that!!!! It's all contained and the bag is definitely heavy duty so there's no worry of it leeking! I loved it!

My friends at Traeger Grills recently sent me this fabulous wood pellet grill - which I was incredibly geeked about - so this seemed like the perfect time to use it! And I will say - this grill is amazing! I always have a problem with grills getting too hot and just basically popping up to 700 degrees no matter what I do. This grill you actually set the temp and the wood pellets are super easy to use. We love it!

The Traeger did the job perfectly! I love how you can set the temp and it actually heats to that! The wood pellets smell great too!

I got all my toppings together and was read to go. I love making this a Doritos Cool Ranch Salad! Bust up some of those chips and crunch away. The toppings are so fresh - I couldn't wait to dig in! It was rough getting through the photos without tasting.

The chicken was delicious! The Traeger cooked it perfectly - no burned pieces and still super juicy. I might have snuck a couple of pieces before making my salad. The Budweiser Buffalo Chicken marinade was great as well! I liked it because I don't love super spicy food - and this was perfect - it had that delicious buffalo sauce flavor (no eggs!) but wasn't spicy.

How can you not want to dig in?! My husband was pretty much standing over me waiting for me to finish the pics so he could take this from me for dinner. We had plenty for the two of us and his brother who was visiting. There was even enough for the pups to have a little chicken of their own.

Here's the full lineup of the Budweiser Sauces - all of which are happily in my cupboard right now! I can't wait to keep trying these all summer long. 

This salad was enjoyed by all of us and so easy to make! While you're grilling the chicken - you just slice and dice and you're ready to go. You could also add black beans, roasted corn and avocados to this salad.
