My boyfriend and I did a lot of riding this summer. It was fun.
You know how I am, I like to plan ahead and have my chicken ready for anything.
I made my easy chicken salad recipe a couple of times and chopped in greens into it as our recovery snack to hold us over before dinner….yes, they were long rides where we rolled in after 4 or 5 pm.
Sometimes we did cheese and tortilla chips. But this was noticably more healthy.
The other day, I accidentally left the leftover grilled chicken in the Pyrex dish in his fridge….and we never did make the chicken salad while I was there. Just ran out of time. And I totally forgot until the next morning.
He asked me for a tutorial….so I made a video (it is also below).
It is super easy and a great way to use up that chicken on any given day.
I had mine this time with avocado and craisins – OMG so good!
My Amazing chicken salad recipe is simple:
1/4 cup of diced onion – I prefer white or yellow vs red
1-2 tbsp mayo – preferably olive oil based but not light or reduced fat
1 tsp dijon mustard
sea salt & pepper to taste
1 chicken breast (cooked) diced
1 cup mixed greens of your choice of greens diced
dried cranberries, cherries or raisins
Combine the first 5 ingredients together in a large bowl.
Mix/toss the ingredients until coated fairly evenly.
Once coated with mayo/mustard, add other optional stuff and greens or put on a bed of greens.
Can eat with corn chips, too if mixed with greens. You can eat it on a cracker, corn chip, sweet potato corn chip, potato chip or cucumber or zucchini slices. Lots of options! Or just put it on a bed of greens and add a handful of celery, craisins and sunflower seeds.
Let me know if you make this chicken salad and if you also think it is pretty amazing even though so simple and easy! 5 minutes! done 🙂
Post below any suggestions on how you have made it!
