Leftover Chicken Salad

Posted by Brette in Food | Leftovers

Here’s my latest installment of what to do with your leftovers! Got leftover chicken? Make a big dinner salad that feeds 4 and is super satisfying.

Leftover Chicken Salad

1 head of Boston or Romaine lettuce, torn into pieces (you can also buy bagged salad)

10 baby carrots, thinly sliced

2 clementine tangerines, peeled, sectioned then cut in half

1/4 cup shredded Swiss cheese (or any of your choice)

1 to 1 1/2 leftover chicken breasts, cut into bite size pieces

2 tbsp finely chopped red onion

Toss all of this together. You can use bottled dressing or make your own.

This serves 4 and with a loaf or bread or some potatoes, it is a complete meal.

The great thing about salad is that it is very forgiving. You can add any raw veggie you like, use any kind of lettuce and any kind of dressing.  Choose your cheese. If you don’t want fruit, don’t add it, but if you do, salads with apples, pears ,or  strawberries are tasty and a fun way to make things a bit brighter.
