This week, I needed a recipe so simple, the instructions would only be one sentence.
Things are crazy at our house this week with prepping for our move, so when I was doing my meal planning I wanted some grab and go recipes. I immediately thought, I’ll make a batch of mayo and prep some salad / picnic staples for this week with some leftovers (saved me a grocery trip too!).
This Paleo Chicken Salad is a crowd-pleaser and is super easy, and a great way to use up some leftovers. If making the full recipe, I usually buy a rotisserie chicken (I love the lemon chicken from the deli counter!) so it is nice and moist (yeah, I said it..). But, if you don’t like the mess and the lighter side, a 4-pack of chicken breasts works just fine. This time around, I actually made a half, because someone…cough, cough, Hubby…decided to eat 1/2 my chicken. HAH!
Paleo Chicken Salad
makes 6 servings.
- 1 rotisserie chicken, diced and de-boned

Throw all the ingredients in a bowl…and stir!
