Easy Rotisserie Chicken Salad

Who says eating healthier has to take up all your free time with meal prepping and making food from scratch?  It does not.  Although if you are just starting out you might find it more time consuming then picking up a family pack at Kentucky Fried Chicken or a Value Meal, but trust me when I say it gets easier and quicker as you adapt.  

One of my favorite go to meals is Chicken Salad or Tuna Salad.  Tuna is great because it's a pantry shelf staple.  (be sure to buy wild caught tuna)   Always on hand.   But if you are running short on time stop by the local grocery store and pick up one of those Rotisserie Chickens.

Here's some ideas!

Dinner!  Heat through and slice up. Pair with steamed veggie of choice. 

Lunch - slice off some cold and top off a fresh garden salad!  (or for dinner)

Quality time with spouse! - Debone the chicken together and it's a great time to catch up on the days events!

Snack - Make a chicken salad and snack away! Pair with GF crackers and some grapes. 

Lunch/Dinner - top off a garden salad with your fresh made chicken salad.  Load it up with raw veggies and a vinaigrette dressing!

Today's lunch was an easy food processor blend with Mayo and hot sauce of choice. A few pulses in the processor and it blends everything to perfection.   There are lots of ways to make chicken salad so be creative!  I topped off a bed of spring mix and threw a few naturally sweetened oranges on the side.  It didn't even need a dressing.

Orange disclosure, I used those little processed packages in natural juices, no added sugar. In moderation they can be acceptable in a pinch or for travel.  I had these on hand so I used them.  Oranges are high in sugar and not a recommended fruit to eat regularly if battling with sugar addiction or trying to limit sugars.  The little fresh clementines are usually on hand and great for a sweet snack. 

Quick, easy and left me with enough time on lunch to wright this blog!
