Jazzy Chicken Salads

I am a sucker for chicken salad. They are easy to make, easy to store, easy to take on the go and a delicious way to pack nutrients into a meal.



Here are my two of my favorites: Gula Chicken & Curried Chicken.


Both salads require cooked chicken breasts. I start by cooking the chicken on my instapot. Check here for my Juicy Instant Pot Chicken Breast from fresh or frozen in 25 minutes from start to finish. Alternatively you can purchase a rotisserie and shred it as well...


Check this video to see how I shred chicken breasts with a mixer super quick and fun!



GULA CHICKEN

For the ROSE DRESSING:

For the SALAD:

  • 2 organic carrots, shredded

  • 3 chicken breasts, shredded

  • half a cup frozen corn

  • half a cup frozen green peas

  • half a cup organic raisin




Optional:

If you want to amp the carbs and go Brazilian Style add half a cup of "Palha Potato" (you will probably need to look up a brazilian store for this item, that's why I leave out most of the time...)


HOW TO MAKE IT:

__________________________________________________________________________________


For the ROSE DRESSING:


Whisk all items together and store it on the fridge.


For the SALAD:


Mix the Shredded Chicken with the Sauce, add all other ingredients. Mix it once again.

It tastes better after a couple of hours in the fridge.

  • 1/4 cup chopped mint

  • 1/2 cup avocado mayonnaise. ( i like Sir Kensington, or primal kitchen)

HOW TO MAKE IT:
