It’s a Pulled Chx Salad Kinda Night…

 

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. 

Ingredients:

* Whole BBQ chicken

* Spinach

* Veggies you like (I like: grape tomatoes, avocados)

* Canned mandarin oranges

* Optional: dried cranberries

Make it:

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.
