Easiest Chicken Salad Sandwich

Chicken Salad | www.nourishnutritionblog.com

Do you have 10 minutes to throw together the most delicious and versatile chicken salad ever? With precooked chicken, you’re way too close to a delicious lunchbox chicken salad. Eat it over a bed of lettuce, over whole grain bread, or just off a spoon. 

I’ve been craving chicken salad for too long. After tossing kind-of random ingredients into a bowl, I realized just why I’ve been craving this for so long. It’s amazing! But you want to know what makes it even more amazing? It’s easy and healthy. Instead of the traditional mayo base, a tangy helping of Greek yogurt gives this easy lunch the most delicious base. Also, it’s the first recipe I’ve shot on my newly made photography backgrounds (a little DIY post coming soon!).

How to Make Chicken Salad in 10 minutes flat

In order to make this deliciously fast, you’ll need precooked chicken and some prepped vegetables. I’m a huge believer of planning and preparing to make weekday meals a snap. You can go ahead & follow my instructions to become a kitchen chicken wiz by roasting a chicken (disclaimer: it may seem intimidating…. it took me a few long months to get the gumption to get to roasting but it’s seriously the easiest and MOST DELICIOUS thing you can do in your kitchen!) Here’s the link to perfectly roast your bird.

Also, meal prep/planning. It’s a buzz word, but for really good reason. Here’s a link to sign up for my free guide to meal planning, hope you enjoy it!

Also, I’d love to hear which photo you like better! I can’t seem to choose, guess it’s like picking a fave kid 😉

I love this salad served over a bed of butter lettuce or in a toasted whole wheat pita, also with butter lettuce. I fell in love with the texture and mild flavor of butter lettuce paired with this tangy and delicious chicken salad.

    I love using Greek yogurt in chicken salad! It definitely adds some zip while still keeping it creamy. Your photos look great, too!
