BBQ Chicken Quinoa Salad

I pinned this some time ago on Pinterest but didn’t get around to making it until tonight and I am so glad that I did. YUM! I will be making it again for sure. I grilled up some BBQ chicken on the Foreman {our grill is out of propane so I had to improvise with BBQ sauce and the Foreman.} It was easy to make and super filling. Plus, I feel like it was pretty darn healthy.
