Fresh, light and quick to whip up. This BLTA Pesto Chicken Salad is great for those busy weekday lunches. It is also terrific for weekly meal prep.
This pesto 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 in the refrigerator so that I can whip up a batch in a moments notice. This is also amazing as a low carb sandwich wrap when wrapped in low carb and gluten free tortilla. Check out a couple of my other favorite low carb chicken salad combinations.
