This recipe takes boring old chicken salad to a whole new universe! My Grilled Chicken Salad is so easy and delicious and made from leftover grilled chicken!
I am all about the cook once and eat twice! (At the very least, sometimes 3 or even 4 times!) So when I made this Garlic Scape Grilled Chicken Tenders, I used the entire pacakage of chicken tenders, about 3 pounds.
We ate the chicken for dinner, then lunch and then dinner the next night in the form of this Grilled Chicken Salad! I love adding new, different ingredients to classic recipes that I have made for years. It’s usually something I have in the fridge or the pantry. This day I happened to find eggs and pecans and thought they would both be lovely additions to the Grilled Chicken Salad. I wasn’t wrong! Plus, this couldn’t be an easier weeknight meal! No turning on the oven and heating up the house! Perfect for hot summer nights!
How to Make Grilled Chicken Salad with Leftover Cooked Chicken
Dice up the chicken in bite sized pieces. Then chop onion, celery and fresh parsley.
Peel and chop eggs. I leave them in slightly larger pieces so that they don’t get lost. Then rough chop the pecans.
Mix all of the ingredients in a large enough bowl with spices and mayo. Done deal!!
You can serve the salad on bread or toast or serve it with a bed of lettuce for a low carb option! I hope you enjoyed the post today for Grilled Chicken Salad! Don’t forget to sign up for my mialing list so that you don’t miss a recipe!
