|I used Texas Pecan Halves & Spicy Cayenne Pepper, be Creative & Enjoy.|
This past week when the Mister had to travel away from home I ended up having to figure out ways of using up an entire roast chicken. (Not too much of a stretch actually!) I decided a cold dinner of a Paleo Chicken Salad would be just perfect. We had so much Chicken Salad left over that a lunch choice was of course a natural progression. Throwing this yummy salad into a Bento along side a few veggies was wonderful. You can dress up or spice your own chicken salad up or down. I recommend making this salad as I did the evening before & chilling it well for a good lunch box addition.
Paleo Chicken Salad
4 cups of cooked diced chicken, or whole roasted chicken, meat pulled off the bone & skinned.
2 large tart apple, cored & diced
1 red bell pepper, seeded & diced
½ cup chopped walnuts
¼ cup homemade* mayonnaise
2 teaspoons lime juice
2 teaspoons agave nectar
Instructions for Salad
In a medium size bowl, combine chicken, apple, bell pepper & pecans.
In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, lime juice & agave nectar and mix until well blended.
Season to taste with cayenne pepper
Toss the dressing over chicken salad and toss to cover chicken & serve immediately or chill.
Mayonnaise is by nature friendly towards this diet lifestyle however if the chicken salad seems to need more moisture in the way of mayonnaise watch amount of extra mayo being added.
