This light and easy chicken salad recipe made with leftover rotisserie chicken breast meat and my homemade ranch dressing. Great for lunch and meal prep!
I love keeping chicken salad on hand for easy lunch for the week. Buying a small container of the pre-made stuff is so expensive, and never as good as homemade
This recipe happened by accident, I had some leftover ranch dressing and some leftover chicken breast and combined the two and loved how it tasted! Serve it in a wrap, over lettuce, make a chicken melt or stuffed in a tomato or avocado!
You can also buy pre-cooked chicken, or make shredded chicken in the slow cooker by covering it with chicken broth and cooking it 4 hours on low.
Making ranch dressing from scratch is easy, you just need buttermilk which is naturally light, a little mayo and some herbs and spices.
2tablespoonfresh finely chopped chives
fresh black pepper, to taste
2cupsshredded boneless chicken breast, from rotisserie chicken or leftover
In a medium bowl combine the buttermilk, mayo, chives, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, parsley, basil and black pepper and mix.
Add the shredded chicken and mix well. Refrigerate until ready to eat.
