For the BBQ chicken:

  • 2 lb. boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 2 tsp. paprika
  • 2 tsp. chipotle or chili powder
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tsp. ground coriander
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • ½ tsp. onion powder
  • ¼ tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 ½ tsp. Kosher salt
  • 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. canola oil
  • ¼ cup BBQ sauce


For the dressing:

  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 cup cilantro leaves, diced
  • 1 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 3 tsp. dried dill
  • 2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tsp. onion powder
  • Kosher salt to taste


For the salad:

  • 1 head green leaf lettuce, washed, dried and torn
  • 1 cup Wild Wonders® Tomatoes, sliced in half
  • ½ cup charred corn, sliced from the cob
  • 2 avocados, sliced
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup pepitas
  • ¼ cup tortilla strips or chips
  • 2 Tbsp. chives, minced, for garnish


For the chicken:

  • Combine the chicken thighs, spices and oil in a large bowl and toss well to evenly coat the chicken. Wrap or transfer to a resealable bag and allow to marinate for at least 4 hours up to  overnight.
  • When ready to cook, heat the grill to medium heat (325-350°F). Remove chicken from the marinade, discarding any excess marinade, and place chicken on the heated grill.
  • Cook chicken for 5-7 minutes (depending on thickness) with the lid down. Flip chicken, then close lid and continue cooking for another 5-7 minutes until the meat reaches an internal temperature of 165°F.
  • Once cooked through, remove the chicken from the heat and place onto a large platter. Cover with aluminum foil and let rest for at least 10 minutes, or until ready to assemble the salad.


For the salad:

  • To make the dressing, add all the ingredients to a mixing bowl, and stir to combine. Set aside.
  • Cut chicken into strips. To assemble the salad, start with the lettuce and top with Wild Wonders® Tomatoes, corn, avocado, onion, pepitas, tortilla strips, and chicken.
  • Serve garnished with chives with the dressing on the side, or toss all ingredients together and serve.
