BLT Chicken Salad

Our rule of thumb in the Brooks’ household is to have a pretty light lunch.

However, sometimes that can get boring and just blah.

So, I have been racking my brain trying to come up with different lunch ideas and I came up with this one!

A BLT lettuce wrap, but with the addition of some chicken, makes for a perfect light and healthy lunch!

Ingredients

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
  • 5 strips of bacon, cooked and diced
  • 1/4 cup green onions, chopped finely
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • large lettuce leaves for serving, I used romaine lettuce

Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, add shredded chicken. *Rotisserie chicken works great in this recipe!*
  2. Add in the chopped bacon, green onions, tomatoes, mayonnaise, and black pepper.
  3. Stir to evenly coat the chicken and vegetables, adding more mayonnaise if the mixture seems a little dry.
  4. Serve with lettuce leaves and use the chicken salad as a filling.
  5. BLT Chicken Salad can be stored in the refrigerator for 2 days.
