On Sundays after church we often buy a few rotisserie chickens to shred up for the week’s meal prep. These can usually be purchased for about five dollars at your local big box store (you know the ones, right sam?). After which, even with tasters here and there, the leftovers almost always end up in this favorite chicken salad recipe of ours.

This refreshingly light tasting Chicken Salad is extremely quick and easy to make. It’s also a great go to snack or meal when the kids run in claiming they are starving (“didn’t I just feed you?”).

I think you will enjoy this wonderful recipe I’ve adapted from a special long time friend:
