Tired of eating that leftover roasted chicken? Make it into an exciting Chicken Salad instead!
I love making roasted chicken for dinner. We’re a household of 2 and although my partner doesn’t love roasted chicken, he sure loves my Chicken Salad. All those leftovers leave you with countless meal options so don’t feel like you have to keep reheating that same old dinner. Why not use those leftovers to create a new and exciting dish and give them new life! For me, I generally use leftover chicken in the form of some sort of sandwich, so this time I’m sharing my Chicken Salad recipe (or at least, one of them).
My portions are based on half a medium-sized chicken. Depending on how much chicken you’re using, you’ll have to adjust the portions accordingly. Feel free to use this recipe as more of a guideline or for ideas. The portions can be more so based on your taste and preference, so be sure to taste as you go! Never feel like you can’t adjust a recipe based on your taste, after all, you’re the one eating the final product. So, if you’re looking a for a classic, savory chicken salad recipe, this one’s for you.
