Goal of Losing's Chicken Salad

Yesterday, I shared with you a recipe for breakfast egg salad. In keeping with the trend, I think it's time that I shared my own version of chicken salad, as well. 

This chicken salad recipe is made to suit my taste buds {I need to add pickles to everything these days for some reason} and it's highly addictive! 

I like to eat this chicken salad on a sandwich occasionally but, it's even better on it's own, or eaten with some pita chips as a snack.

2 tbsp. mayo
1 can chicken
1/3 cup craisens
2 sandwich-stacker pickles, diced
salt, to taste

4 servings.

Each serving is 140 calories with 8.5 grams of carbs, 6 grams of fat and 11 grams of protein!

This is another recipe that I like to food prep ahead of time, on a Sunday, and eat throughout the week. Next time though, I'll have to double the recipe because it didn't last as long as I thought it would!

The last time that I made this chicken salad, it didn't last more than two days in my house. I couldn't stop eating it! Whenever I divvy it up between 4 little containers, the chicken salad becomes the quickest and tastiest little treat!

Also, these tiny containers that I found at my local grocery store make me super happy. They are the perfect little snack-sized containers. I use them for my toddler and now as a way to portion control for myself, as well!

Readers, what do you like to put in your chicken salad?


  1. Never thought to add Craisins to chicken salad...I bet you that touch of sweetness is just yummy!

  2. Yum! I love chicken salad! I put grapes, celery, and pineapple in mine. I also mix a bit of pineapple juice with the mayo before stirring everything up. So good!!
