Most chicken salads I’ve tried over the years have been on the bland side. Chicken isn’t exactly the most flavorful thing, especially if you’re using canned chicken or all breast meat, which a good percentage of chicken salad recipes use.
This recipe starts off on a better footing by using really good shredded chicken from your roast chicken, but it doesn’t stop there. This salad packs in some serious flavors that make it a perfect weekday lunch. I usually make a big batch of it and then use it throughout the week for lunches and snacks.
