BBQ Ranch Chicken Salad

This has got to be one of my all-time favorite salad recipes.  In fact, I've decided "it's what's for dinner tonight."  I can get boneless, skinless chicken breasts at our local grocery store for $1.88 per pound--today only.  As soon as I post this, I am heading to the store.  Chicken cooked in BBQ suace is so good.  (Really like it on homemade pizza.)  The combination of the BBQ sauce and the ranch flavor is a perfect blend of sweet and savory.  And then top it off with feta cheese.  Love that stuff.  (Not quite as much as cream cheese, but it's in the running.)  Quick.  Easy.  Add some bread and a hot veggie and you' ve got dinner on the table.  Meet you in the meat department in a couple.  (Terry)
1# boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips (about 2 breasts)  NOTE:  I only use about half the amount of chicken called for
½ C BBQ sauce
1 pkg (10 oz) salad greens
1 large tomato, cut into wedges
½ C sliced red onion
½ C ranch dressing
¼ C feta
Cook and stir chicken in BBQ sauce in large skillet on medium-high heat 8 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.  Add additional BBQ sauce, if desired.
Toss greens, tomato, and onion in large bowl.  Top with chicken.  Pour dressing over greens mixture.  Sprinkle with cheese.  Makes 6 servings.
