I Absolutely Love Chicken Salad! Did I say I love Chicken Salad? Use up that leftover turkey! If you are able to buy an organic rotisserie chicken, this will save you a ton of time! Perfect to use leftover chicken. If not, you can put a whole chicken in the Instant Pot for about min. It saves me so much time! By far my favorite kitchen appliance! I absolutely can not live without it! I even take it with me when we go to the beach so that I can make chicken salad for the week.
One of my favorite easy lunches to meal prep is chicken salad. I love this chicken salad with cranberries and almonds! The crunch from the almonds and the slight sweetness from the dried cranberries is so good. Even though this has dried cranberries, it is still keto friendly with only 5 net carbs per serving. I am a big fan of chicken salad…in fact, I have 2 other versions on my blog you should definitely check out. They are all equally delicious! Chicken salad is so versatile, you really can use any chicken that you have on hand. I have used rotisserie chicken, canned chicken, and chicken breast that I have poached or baked myself. Poaching the chicken yields the juiciest chicken so that is my favorite way to prepare it. I simply bring a pot of salted water or chicken broth and the chicken breasts to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Let the chicken cook until the internal temperature is F. If you are out of lemon juice, you can use orange juice, white vinegar, white wine vinegar, or apple cider vinegar.
I also used unsweetened cranberries as I prefer to eat friendly with only 5 net. Season with salt and pepper. Even though this has dried cranberries, it is still keto dried cranberries without sweetener carbs per serving. Thank you for sharing to taste. Add the chicken to the mixture and stir well to.
