Chicken Salad Recipes




Think Chicken Salads are boring?  Think again!  I have never made or eaten a chicken salad at home that was ever boring.  My moto is "Never a Boring Salad."

But don't take my word for it. The proof is in the eating! 

I have here a collection of ten of my favorite all time chicken salads. You won't find a boring member in the bunch!  All are different. All are exciting.  All are delicious! 

This bunch of chicken salad recipes are beautiful main dish salads, with a huge variety of flavors, dressings, ingredients, and ways to prepare the chicken!  I guarantee none of these will have your family going ho hum!

Some might even be destined to become firm family favorites!
  
 
 
 
Chicken Taco Salad

 



CHICKEN TACO SALAD -   This is the low fat version of a popular salad, but I can promise you, you will never miss the fat! With plenty of chicken pieces, low fat cheese, and baked tortilla chips, lots of veggies, and a very tasty low fat dressing, this always goes down a real treat!  Its just spicy enough without being over the top. You can adjust that as you will.


Buffalo Chicken Salad




BUFFALO CHICKEN SALADA delicious chicken salad with crisp vegetables, spicy chicken tenders and a fabulous low fat blue cheese dressing! Adapted from Ellie Kreiger's Book, the food you crave. You just know its healthy.


Grilled Chicken & Wheatberry Salad




GRILLED CHICKEN & WHEATBERRY SALAD - colorful plate of salad greens with a delicious wheatberry salad, chock full of crunch and sweetness. Crunchy toasted walnuts and chopped celery . . . sweet dried cranberries . . . spicy spring onions, and a tangy lemon and olive oil dressing. Topped again with a breast of chicken that has been rubbed with a delicious mixture of spices and grilled until perfectly cooked, and still juicy and tender. 


Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad



GRILLED CHICKEN CAESAR SALAD -
I think Caesar Salad is one of my absolute favourite salads, next to the Cobb Salad and when you add some grilled chicken it becomes even more so! I rub the chicken before cooking with my own homemade Montreal Chicken Seasoning.  Its very easy to make and tastes delicious. 


Honey & Sesame Chicken Noodle Salad




HONEY & SESAME CHICKEN NOODLE SALAD -  With this you get a cold sesame noodle salad adorned with perfectly cooked chicken, and plenty of green crunchy tender stem broccoli. It makes for a perfect make ahead family supper for those days when you are really busy and know you won't have a lot of time on your hands. This is absolutely delicious! If you are fond of Asian flavors, you will love this.


Almost Fried Chicken Chopped Salad



ALMOST FRIED CHICKEN CHOPPED SALAD - Quite simply delicious. A chopped salad using crispy home breaded chicken tenders and whatever vegetables you have on hand. Its fabulously tasty, boasting a rich, creamy and flavor filled dressing.


Chicken, Avocado & Tomato Salad


CHICKEN, AVOCADO & TOMATO SALADTender, perfectly cooked pieces of chicken sit atop a salad composed of mixed salad leaves, creamy avocado,  and rehydrated sun dried tomatoes.  Crisp pepitas or sunflower pumpkin seeds as you may know them, make for a tasty and crispy garnish.  Not only is this low in carbs and keto friendly, but it is also totally gluten free for those who cannot tolerate gluten.   If you rein in the dressing, it is also low in fat and I think totally Diabetic friendly. 


Cashew Chicken Salad

 

CASHEW CHICKEN SALADTender chicken breast slices, coated with cashew nuts and fried in olive oil until golden brown on both sides  . . . Served hot atop crisp baby gem leaves.  Baby Gem are like tiny romaine lettuces, but a bit more bitter in flavour. You could use baby romaine or romaine hearts.  A lush Maple Mustard Dressing completes the picture. 


Crispy Chicken Salad



CRISPY CHICKEN SALADWhat you have here is a delicious mix of salad greens, topped with a mix of fruit and vegetables.  Spring and red onion.  Cucumber, carrot.  Radishes and sliced apple. Add to that cubes of sharp cheddar cheese and sweet and tangy dried cranberries. Now top it all off with scrumptious little bits of shredded chicken breast that have  been coated in a spice mixture and fried until crispy golden brown. Fabulously tasty! 


BLT Chicken Salad


BLT CHICKEN SALADI adore chicken salads of any kinds.  I also adore BLT sandwiches.  This delicious salad is a way of enjoying both of those loves at the same time.  Everything in the salad is perfectly cooked without going over the top.  You have perfectly crisp and salty pieces of streaky bacon, not too crisp, not limp. Perfectly cooked, juicy tender boneless, skinless chicken breasts.  Perfectly cooked hard boiled egg. Grated Cheese and a punchy Honey Mustard Dressing complete the picture.
