Chicken has long been the go-to protein of athletes of all kinds. But that doesn’t mean that we don’t all sometimes get really, really tired of chicken.
This chicken salad is about to change all that.
Put away the dry chicken breasts and broccoli, and instead, enjoy this sweet and snappy apple, onion, and chicken concoction. This salad offers a great blend of macronutrients—protein in the chicken, carbs in the apple, and healthy fats in the mayo—while also serving up a delicious texture and flavor.
Speaking of those healthy fats: while it is possible to find friendlier versions of mayonnaise at the store, the easiest way to ensure your mayo is made with a good quality oil is to make it yourself. Click here for our homemade mayo recipe.
This chicken salad works great in a lettuce wrap, on top of a salad, as a dip for celery sticks, or simply all by itself. So, try it out, and if you like it, double the recipe next time.
