Sometimes I joke with people that I am a chicken-tarian. I am almost a vegetarian, except I really do like chicken, and I eat a lot of it. Since I am not wasting my time on all those other types of meat, I think I have gotten pretty good at making chicken in every way you can imagine. I also like to get super creative when it comes to flavors so I can still have a lot of variety despite only eating limited meat.
One of my absolute favorite ways to eat chicken is chicken salad. It allows it to be so moist, and flavorful and you can get as creative with it as you want incorporating all sorts of flavors.
When my husband and I decided to do the Whole30 food challenge last year this came in especially handy! Who knew it was so easy to make whole foods taste so good by packing in all sorts of good stuff into chicken salad! It was a life saver for us during the diet and I had fun getting really creative with the flavor combinations. Let me guarantee you though… If you are NOT on a diet, you will still LOVE these recipes! I am not a diet person, so trust me, give it a try and let me know what you think!
Another thing I love about chicken salad, even when you aren’t on a diet, is that you can pack in TONS of veggies and extras that make the dish much lower in calories and really nutrient rich. With anything from celery, carrots, and onion, to apples and grapes, you can really put a lot of super good-for-me foods into such a great tasting and easy to make dish!
