How do you like chicken salad? With or without fruit? With or without nuts? Personally, I’ll take it any way it comes! Some of my favorite is actually from Jason’s Deli because of the pineapple they put in it. Since it’s not the cleanest option though, I usually opt for making it myself. I like to make it on a Sunday, and have it for lunch throughout the week.
To ensure I don’t get tired of it, I’ll switch it up- eat it as a sandwich, on a bed of lettuce, open face on an English muffin, in mini sweet peppers, and as a wrap. I’ll also change up the flavor, which this recipe is a great base for! I’ll add in grapes, pecans, jalapeños, pineapple, bacon, taco seasoning, buffalo sauce, or a vinaigrette. It’s so versatile!
4 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded (or use a rotisserie chicken)
