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.


Ingredients:
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?

  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!!
