Creamy Chicken Salad
I am a woman of my word and although it may take some time, you better believe that as soon as I remember, I will do what I said I would do! LOL
Not long ago, I posted the picture below when I tried a new Creamy Chicken Salad Recipe. I had a few request to share the recipe and I mentioned that I would share it in a blog. Then as I started to make for tonight's dinner I FINALLY remembered that I forgot to share the recipe! Are there any other ladies out there who can relate to the struggle of remembering?:)
So as promised, here it is:)
I got the recipe out of the Fixate cookbook and honestly, I have yet to find a recipe that I don't like from this book! So if you are looking for some healthy, real food recipes, check this out!
I am going to share my version of this recipe. It is very close to the one in the book but not exact.
~ Creamy Chicken Salad ~
3 cups Chopped Rotisserie Chicken
1/2 cup Chopped green apple
1/2 cup seedless red grapes, cut in half
1/3 cup sliced raw almonds
2 green onions, sliced
1/4 cup honey mustard salad dressing ( I made my own from another one of Autumn Calabrese's recipes but you could buy an organic version at most stores)
8 cups shredded romaine lettuce
STEP 1: Combine Chicken, apple, grapes, almonds, green onion and honey mustard in a large bowl; mix well. Refrigerate, covered, for 2 hours.
STEP 2: Serve cups Creamy Chicken Salad over 2 cups romaine lettuce for each serving.
OPTIONAL MEDINA FAMILY USES: We also like to eat our Creamy Chicken Salad in wraps using whole wheat tortillas, on a whole wheat pita or even as dip with pita chips!
I like to double or triple the recipe and store the rest in mason jars for our lunch the next day. You can even make a great mason jar salad with it as well.
I hope you will enjoy this easy recipe and if you have any questions about the Fixate Book or anything health and fitness related, don't hesitate to ask. As a mamma of 3 I am always looking for ways to eat healthy while saving money and time and would love to pass along any tips I can.
