Kim's Simple Chicken Salad

Kim Biegacki


I love chicken salad especially if it has a great texture & is tasty too. I do not like my chicken swimming in mayo but rather just enough to hold it all together. I enjoy the addition of cranberries & nuts that gives this salad even more flavor. This one is packed with protein for sure. Hope you enjoy.

How to Make Kim's Simple Chicken Salad


  1. Add your cut up chicken to the Power Chef and/or food processor to shred up quickly. Add remaining ingredients and chop till desired consistency. Stir in the seasonings and taste. Add more to your liking.
  2. My handful of nuts.
  3. I make this salad and eat it wrapped inside romaine lettuce leaves or any other kind of lettuce that will roll up easily. I have an allergy to wheat, so I am trying alternative ways to eat my favorite foods by omitting bread.
  4. This is a pic of how this salad makes enough for the work week for me. It's packed up in my favorite Tupperware coordinating containers along with my coconut water I drink daily for it's potassium.
