Rotisserie Chicken Salad Is The Best
One of my jobs in high school was working at a Subway Sandwich shop with my friends. I had a blast working there and I’m sure the owners lost a lot of money. This was the place where everyone gathered Friday nights after the high school football game or on Saturday nights when there was nothing else to do. If I wasn’t working there, I knew someone who was. And if my friends we there, we were eating for free.
Whether I was on duty or not, I would waltz in and help myself to hot steak wrapped in cheese, meatballs, cookie dough, chips and anything else I felt like munching on. It was horrible. Yes, it was basically stealing and aside from that, it was unhealthy. I put on at least 15 lbs while I was working there.
I Love A Good Chicken Salad
Subway never carried a chicken salad, if they did, I probably would have devoured that too. I love a good chicken salad, but it cannot have too much mayo! Chicken salad has to have a hint of sweet and a little crunch. As the name implies, this recipe starts with rotisserie chicken. I LOVE using a rotisserie chicken! I use it in my Chicken Florentine Soup and even in dips like this King Ranch Chicken Dip. It such a time saver and it never lets me down. I tossed the chicken with juicy red grapes, tart dried cherries, and chopped walnuts. I kept this recipe Paleo and used a little avocado mayo but any mayo will work. I whisked a little vinegar into the mayo along with garlic, salt and pepper then combined this with the chicken and voila! There you have the worlds best chicken salad!
This recipe is rather adaptable, you can add or take away any of the ingredients and you would still have a kicking chicken salad recipe! A better chicken salad than anything you could find at a restaurant!
