I ate this tonight. Pulled Chicken Salad. A off-the-top-of-my-head recipe from an old friend that never fails. It’s clean, healthy, filling and delicious (and quick, easy-peasy).
I was leaving Zumba tonight and hit up the grocery store as I needed two things: (i) groceries, and (ii) dinner. After picking up various produce and planning my meal for tomorrow night (I’m making a Greek chicken crock pot dish I’ve never attempted before) I started to feel hungry. I hit up the magazine/cookbook aisle for inspiration and I didn’t even need to open a book! I saw a magazine entitled, ‘Clean Eating’ and my mind jumped to this salad and back to the produce aisle I went. Within 15 minutes of arriving home I was chowing down.
* Whole BBQ chicken
* Veggies you like (I like: grape tomatoes, avocados)
* Canned mandarin oranges
* Optional: dried cranberries
Pull all the chicken off your BBQ chicken and put in a bowl off to the side. Put heaping handful of spinach on plate. Chop veggies & add to the mix. Throw in whatever else you want (walnuts are awesome. As are hard boiled eggs). Toss some chicken on top. Enjoy.
Told ya it was easy.
Sometimes I make my own dressing (not tonight, thanks Kraft) and to do so I squeeze a lime (you could use lemon), chop a couple cloves of garlic, and pour in some olive oil. Shake it up and pour over your salad.
