Healthy Chick Salad
This quick and easy classic and healthy chicken salad recipe courtesy Shuangy's Kitchen Sink is perfect for lunch or a light dinner.
Equal parts crunchy, creamy and satisfying, it has no added sugar, gluten or dairy, and is Whole30 friendly!
Time: 10 minutes
2 cups Chicken (can use rotisserie chicken)
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup chopped apples
1/4 cup walnuts (roughly chopped)
Salt/pepper to taste
1/2 tsp paprika
2-3 tbsp dried cranberries
1 tbsp chopped dill (optional)
1/2 lemon juiced
Cook the chicken breast in the oven using my favourite oven-roasted chicken recipe, or use leftover rotisserie chicken (take out the bone). Pull the chicken into thick pieces or roughly chop into cubes.
In a big mixing bowl, add all the ingredients. Mix well until everything is combined and lightly covered by the mayo.
For best results, cover and let it sit in the fridge for a couple of hours to ensure the flavour soak in.
Serve with tomato, avocado, and lettuce on your favourite toasted bread or crackers.
