Get ready for a delicious summer recipe! Nothing is easier or quicker than a traditional Chicken Salad Sandwich. We originally shared it in our free E-Book Clean Eating for Beginners. We were looking through pictures and it looked so tasty we just had to share it here too! Add some Easy Peasy French Onion Dip and a veggie tray or some Forbidden Rice and Veggie Salad on the side and you have yourself the perfect healthy picnic.
If you have cooked chicken (or turkey) on hand it is a cinch to put together. We call it quick and classy because it is just that. The high end addition of the cranberries, pecans, celery and green onions give that “special occasion” feel. However it only takes about 10 minutes to make.
Remember to use organic ingredients especially for your chicken. Organic free range chicken is raised healthily and when you eat it that health is naturally transferred to you. Free range means they are raised in a field with plenty of air and vitamin D from the sun. Organic meat is raised without chemicals. That is exactly what you want!
