I love a good chicken salad recipe, but sometimes finding a great-tasting and healthy chicken salad recipe is a challenge! Most of the recipes that I have come across taste really good, but they are loaded with fat and calories. And, I hardly ever order chicken salad off of a restaurant menu since they are almost always packed with lots of mayo and a pretty scary amount of hidden calories.
My recipe for chicken salad is definitely on the lighter side, but it doesn’t skimp on flavor. This Skinny Chicken Salad recipe is packed with seedless grapes, crunchy pecans and just the right amount of dressing. Try it on a low carb, high fiber wrap, or just on its own for a delicious lunch! Add in additional fruit or chopped onions to make it your own.
As I make this salad quite often, I typically cook a large batch of shredded chicken in my slow cooker every Sunday, which cuts down on the cook and prep time for this recipe drastically. This weekly habit saves me so much time in the kitchen and it ensures I have a substantial base for a variety of delicious and skinny meals.
