Roasted Chicken Salad is one of the healthy options to add good portion protein and lots of fiber in your diet. This salad has all the necessary nutrients that are required for a healthy meal. Roasted chicken salad is also good for people who want to lose their weight or people who are suffering from diabetes, or of course, people who want to stay healthy and fit. If you are a vegetarian, you can use chickpeas, beans, or daal instead of chicken. I do have shared some salad recipe on the blog. Please do check them out.
Here in this salad, I have used oven-roasted chicken breast. As you know if you use the oven to roast the chicken it takes about 45 minutes. Or for this salad, you can use leftover chicken as well. When I have to make chicken salad I start cooking the chicken first and meanwhile, I chop my vegetables and prepare the salad dressing for the salad.
Chicken Salad is full of so many fresh, colorful, healthy, and delicious ingredients; roasted chicken breast, crunchy lettuce, carrot, cucumber, and moong sprouts. Making salads at home gives you lots of options, such as, to add your favorite vegetables, to add leftover veggies, or to make it more personal by adding your most favorite salad dressing. Here, I just wanna say that you don’t have to add all the same veggies which I have added to my salad. You can choose what you like and what is available at that moment in your freeze. As you know, how easy is to make a salad, just need to assemble all the favorite vegetables, chop them, and mix them together with your favorite salad dressing.
For this salad, I have used thousand island dressing, but if this dressing is not available in your hometown, you can always use homemade garlic lemon dressing. Garlic lemon dressing goes well with any salad. Making this salad dressing is very easy too. It needs only 4 ingredients, fresh minced garlic, lime juice, salt, and olive oil. Mix them well and drizzle them on the salad. You are going to love how fresh and healthy it is and perfect for lunch and dinner.
