What chicken to use
Last night I roasted a chicken (well actually 2 because my family eats a TON) and I did have some leftovers so that is what I am using for this recipe.
You can easily substitute a store bought rotisserie chicken or cooked and shredded chicken breast if that is what is easier for you. It is super delish when eaten on a crisp, cool cucumber and this is definitely a guilt free, easy lunch! So here we go...
How to make Whole 30 friendly chicken salad
Finely chop onions and celery adding them to the bowl with the chicken. If you are a red onion person, then use your beloved red onions instead of yellow ones. IMO red onions are a little too strong for this dish (although I'm not a red onion hater just to clarify!).
Chop or sliver your almonds and quarter the grapes adding them in with the salt and pepper. Give it all a toss.
Now here is where you can use your Whole 30 compliant mayo if you are following that right now. This is a really good recipe here. Add it in and give it a stir and throw it on your cucumbers or bread and there it is!! Tasty, fresh, crispy, crunchy, healthy, delicious Whole 30 friendly chicken salad!
