Summer Strawberry Chicken Salad

Jul

Posted by Coach Becky Piper

As the summer months grow hotter, I use my oven as little as possible for fear of my house becoming more blistering than I can bear. However, I still want to eat healthy, quick, protein-packed meals. So I created a spin on my traditional salad.

Early in the day, while it was still cool, I baked up some chicken with some chicken broth and a little pepper.  I let that cool, shredded it, and stored it in the refrigerator where it would keep for a few days. (You could also freeze it so it would keep longer.)

I shredded some fresh green leaf lettuce, topped it with the shredded chicken, added some sliced stawberries, sliced almonds, and feta cheese. I used some E.V.O.O. flavored with lemon and herbs as a dash of dressing.  It's super simple and refreshing for those hot days!

Summer Strawberry Chicken Salad

  • 2  Cup Green Leaf Lettuce (or other greens of your choosing)
  • 6 Ounces Cooked (or grilled) Chicken
  • 3 to 4 Fresh Strawberries
  • 2 Tablespoons Sliced Almonds
  • Sprinkle of Feta Cheese
  • Drizzle of EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil)
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste


Mix all together and enjoy!

Makes 1 serving.

Note: It's really quick to make!
