Week 37: Chicken Chopped Salad

Chicken Chopped Salad Recipe

Chopped salads are my absolute go to meal when I know I’ve been eating poorly and need to jump start my body with some fresh veggies and hearty proteins.  Such was the case today, after eating some delicious, but maybe not so nutritious steak fajitas and my body weight in chips and salsa at el cholo for lunch.  My body was craving something light and fresh, but still satisfying and flavorful.  Cue the perfect chopped chicken salad…

directions:
I made the shredded chicken in my crockpot earlier in the week- combine 1 pound chicken breasts, 1/2 medium onion chopped, one stalk celery, cover chicken with chicken stock and cook on high for four hours. The chicken will be moist and easily shredded with two forks.

In a large bowl add lettuce, top with all ingredients except for avocado and dressing. Toss salad gently.
Place into cold salad bowls. Garnish with diced avocado and drizzle with dressing if desired.
