Loop Sunday Lunch - Healthy Chicken Salad

What's for lunch?

Here's a healthy lunch option for those trying to limit their caloric intake while maintaining a healthy diet. 

Healthy Chick Salad

This quick and easy classic and healthy chicken salad recipe courtesy Shuangy's Kitchen Sink  is perfect for lunch or a light dinner.

Equal parts crunchy, creamy, and satisfying, it has no added sugar, gluten or dairy and is Whole30 friendly!

Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Chicken (can use rotisserie chicken) 
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup chopped apples
  • 1/4 cup walnuts (roughly chopped)
  • Salt Pepper to Taste
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 2 - 3 tbsp dried cranberries
  • 1 tbsp chopped dill (optional)
  • 1/2 lemon juiced

Instructions

  1. Cook the chicken breast in the oven using my favourite oven-roasted chicken recipe, or use leftover rotisserie chicken (take out the bone). Pull the chicken into thick pieces or roughly chop into cubes.
  2. In a big mixing bowl, add all the ingredients. Mix well until everything is combined and lightly covered by the mayo.
  3. For best results, cover and let it sit in the fridge for a couple of hours to ensure the flavour soak in.
  4. Serve with tomato, avocado, and lettuce on your favourite toasted bread or crackers.

Enjoy!
