Chicken salad is one of my favorite quick and easy go-to lunches. Easy to prepare, flavorful and portable. In my book that is a winning combination. I always have chicken breasts cooked and prepped so that I can whip up a batch in a moments notice. Check out a couple of my other favorite combinations. Dill Chicken Salad and Curried Chicken Salad Stuffed Avocados.
