Chicken Salad


We love chicken around here. Often I will buy a whole rotisserie chicken, use a few pieces for dinner and the leftovers I will turn into my favorite, chicken salad. But sometimes I purchase the entire chicken just for the salad! #yum

Mainly, I love it as a sandwich on a ciabatta roll or a croissant. But a lot of times I will eat it with pita chips as a snack. It is the perfect lunch meal or even a party food. Simple, quick, cheap and delicious. This particular recipe has something that I don’t typically add to my salad, poultry seasoning, and lemon juice. But these two combined with standard chicken salad ingredients, take this dish to another level.
