This really is the ultimate chicken salad!
Sometimes the best foods are created on accident. This is one of those recipes. It was one of those days where I decided to throw a bunch of leftover food together in a bowl.
The “everything but the kitchen sink” method.
The other day I made this Chicken Peanut Ramen Skillet. I had red pepper and shredded carrots leftover from that.
I used one chicken breast from a rotisserie chicken. I almost always have part of a rotisserie chicken in my fridge.
I had some frozen corn in the freezer, which I thawed out.
I also added fresh parsley and red onion.
For the dressing, I used Good Seasons Italian dressing BUT I lightened it up.
Good Seasons Italian dressing is one of my favorites. I like that I can make it myself, that way I can lighten it up.
If you’re not familiar with it, the first time you buy it you get a bottle with it. It’s really cool because the bottle has a “V”, “W” and “O” line on it.
No need to dirty measuring cups or spoons to make the dressing. I have a couple of these bottles laying around my house.
To lighten up the dressing I use half of the oil, and replace the other oil with more water. I can’t even tell a difference. I’m just always sure to shake the bottle really well before I use it.
To make this ultimate chicken salad I put all of the ingredients into a bowl, added 2 tablespoons of dressing and mixed it up. It was so good!
The recipe makes two large servings. It is only 1 Freestyle point per serving!
This is a bright and colorful meal. It definitely makes me think of summer. For only 1 Freestyle point per serving, this one is definitely a winner!
I’m not sure what the exact size of each serving is, but I was able to fill up 2 bowls. It’s a good amount. See the recipe below!
