BBQ Chicken Chopped Salad

I worked at a restaurant called California Pizza Kitchen through high school and college in Tarzana and Pasadena, CA. They just recently opened one at Bridgeport Village a couple of years ago. I still crave the food, it is so good. CPK is known for their BBQ Chicken chopped salad. Here is my copy-cat version with some variations from the original!

2 chicken breast cooked and chopped
1 bunch romaine, 1 head iceberg chopped
1 c. jack cheese grated
1/2 to 1 can black beans drained and rinsed
1/2 to 1 can corn (optional)
1/2 c. chopped red onion
chopped cilantro to taste
chopped tomatoes
chopped cucumber (optional)
jicama (optional)
tortilla chips
Bulls eye BBQ sauce
Ranch
limes

Cook chicken and cover in bulls eye bbq sauce. Chop and toss the rest of the ingredients. Toss with the ranch dressing, crush chips, squeeze lime, and drizzle BBQ sauce on top right before serving. I like mine, drenched in BBQ sauce and lime!
