I was hanging at home with kids and Superman the other day, and looked in our fridge. We had pretty much nothing to eat. There was 3/4 of a rotisserie chicken in there, though. It wasn’t really enough to feed our family just as it was, so I tried to decide what I could do with it (quickly) to make it go a little further. I decided to make this Paleo chicken salad!
You could make this recipe with any type of cooked chicken–it was such a huge hit, I even ended up making it a few days later with some canned chicken (I know that sounds gross, but honestly, it’s kinda like eating tuna, but it’s just chicken, and it sure is nice to have on hand for times when you need cooked chicken and have very little time!). I used rotisserie chicken from Costco. No, it’s not organic or grass-fed. I do what I can when I can, and this time, it’s what I had.
Soooo, this was basically the easiest recipe ever.
Get all your ingredients and mix them together. Literally, the only prep I had to do was to cut the chicken off the bones. I didn’t have any of my homemade mayo, but I did have THIS mayo that we love! I got it at Costco as well. Great ingredients, and non-GMO!
This Paleo chicken salad is also Whole30-friendly if you use homemade mayo!
Paleo Chicken Salad
