Quick Barbecued Chicken & Superfood Salads

Today turned out to be a gorgeous day. We made it up to 60-ish degrees and it was bright and sunny all day for a change. Rather than run our usual errands today, we decided to stay home and take it easy. Hubby has been fighting the virus I had (notice I said "had") all week long. He's on meds now and I am trying to stay healthy and not get it back again from him! I had mine for 7 weeks, which is about 6 weeks too long if you ask me! I'm hoping his will be much shorter and that I don't catch it again.

I did a bit of baking this afternoon and will post that tomorrow. This evening, I just made simple grilled chicken for dinner. I had a couple of chicken breast halves in the fridge that needed to be used. I grilled them and basted hubby's with Sweet Baby Ray's Sauce and basted mine with sugar free Nature's Hollow Honey Mustard Barbecue Sauce that I bought from Amazon a while ago but had never tried. It wasn't bad and is nice to use in a pinch, but I'll be honest, I prefer my own homemade barbecue sauce; I just wasn't in the mood to make it for just 2 pieces of chicken this evening. I don't mind making a batch of barbecue sauce when our weather is consistently warm and we are grilling frequently and I know it will be used, but the weather here has been sketchy where we went from snow yesterday morning to spring-like weather today. I served big Superfood Salads (that I buy from Costco) alongside our chicken. It was a quick and easy meal and it reminded me how much I really miss grilled chicken. I snapped a few photos below.
