Balsamic Chicken Salad

Since it’s finally warmed up a little bit here in the northeast, I was in the mood for salad! This recipe is quick easy and loaded with yummy ingredients!

Balsamic Chicken Salad | Makes 1 Serving

  • Chicken Breast (cooked and chopped)
  • Large Handful of Spring Mix
  • 4 Halved Cherry Tomatoes
  • 1/4 Avocado
  • 2 Tbsp Primal Kitchen Balsamic Dressing
  • 2 Sliced Cooked Bacon (Crumbled)
  • Slices of Red Onion
  • Slices of Cucumber
  • 1 Tbsp Feta Cheese

For the Chicken Seasoning:

  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Italian Seasoning
  • Garlic Powder
  • Onion Powder

Instructions:

Cook the chicken how you like. Example: bake or grill. I brined mine first, brushed with olive oil, seasoned it and then baked it. Chop into small bite size pieces.

Slice cherry tomatoes, red onion, cucumber, and avocado.

Add all ingredients to a bowl with large handfuls of spring mix. Drizzle with dressing and top with bacon crumbles and feta cheese.

I precut my veggies and store them in airtight containers with the portioned out chicken. I then add that to my spring mix when I’m ready to eat and top with bacon crumbles and dressing last. This way I can still food prep but the leafy greens don’t get soggy. I keep the bacon crumbles wrapped in a paper towel in a zip lock bag in the fridge as well to keep fresh.
