Easy peasy chicken salad recipe!

September 30, 2016

I’m a pretty good cook, if I do say so myself.  I’ll be honest with you guys though, I’m very much self taught.  I do not come from a long line of chefs.  However, before Liam was born, I decided I needed to stop eating out and shed some extra weight.  At that point, I really poured myself into cookbooks, cooking shows, Pinterest recipes, etc.  I’m currently in another season of being ready to lose some weight.  I think I’m about 30 pounds away from my weight loss goals (which means I’m down 10 lbs!) so I thought you guys might enjoy having me share some of my favorite recipes for weight loss and simplicity.  I really like to focus on efficient meals, meal ideas that are easy to do with two small children fighting in the next room.

This recipe I used my Kitchen-aid mixer for, but I’m sure an electric mixer would have the same effect.

I baked 5 chicken tenderloins in the oven at 425 for 30 minutes.

Threw the cooked tenderloins in the mixing bowl.

Turned it on a 2 speed and let the mixer shred the tenderloins up for me

I added about a cup of olive oil mayo

a bunch of grapes

a handful of sunflower seeds

a handful of nuts

a handful of shredded carrots

mixed it again on that 2 speed to combine everything.

I served mine on a cucumber, but would be delicious on a French baguette as well.

This is a very easy meal to create, and really allows you to use up any ingredients you’re on the verge of wasting.  I highly recommend! dsc_0434
