chicken salad

Updated: Sep 10, 2019


Hello friends!

This is one of my favorite recipes!! Fresh chicken salad, yummmm! It is always a go-to for me when I have a busy week. I will usually make a large batch of it so I can have it available for many different meals so that I always have a healthy option on hand! I either eat it plain (as the main dish), as a sandwich, or even on a cabbage wrap to add a little extra flavor and crunch.

The ingredients are interchangeable, and you don't necessarily have to use them all every time, but I usually think the more ingredients, the better it tastes! But mix and match as you see fit.

Cook Time (for the chicken): 15 minutes

Preparation Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Servings: 2-4 servings

Ingredients:

  • 2-3 large chicken breasts (preferably organic and free-range)

  • Turmeric spice (what I season the chicken in)

  • 1/2 cup chopped celery

  • 1/2 cup chopped carrots carrots

  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts (walnuts work the best!)

  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries or raisins

  • 1/2 cup chopped grapes

  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds

  • Primal Kitchen avocado oil mayo

Directions:

  • Using a medium heat, cook the chicken in a pan until fully cooked through (seasoned in turmeric if desired)

  • While the chicken is cooking, cut up all other ingredients and place in a large mixing bowl

  • Once the chicken is cooked, let it cool for about 5 minutes, and the chop up into small pieces

  • Add the chicken into the bowl and stir to get all ingredients evenly distributed

  • Add in the mayo (as much as needed) and keep stirring!

  • Store in the fridge for a few hours before consumption (I think it's better cold!)

  • Enjoy!!!
