I love a chicken salad, and I love the many variations of chicken salad! One of my friends got me started on a chipotle chicken salad sold at Aldi, and I loved it. The problem is, it wasn’t Trim Healthy Mama (THM) friendly! So I set out to make a THM friendly version.
I also love a quick recipe that doesn’t take a lot to put together. This recipe fits the bill! Its quick, and protein packed. Just a little will fill you up! I love to eat it with sliced bell peppers or cucumbers to keep the meal in S mode, (Low Carb!).
2 cans chicken drained
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayo
1/2 can black beans rinsed and drained
1 can rotel- drained
2 T taco seasoning
Salt and Pepper to taste!
Take the sour cream, mayo and seasonings and stir up well in a medium bowl. Then fold in the Rotel, beans and canned chicken.
This tastes best if you let it chill for a little bit in the fridge so the flavors can meld and its a nice cold temperature. I tend to like chicken salads best when they are cold versus room temp!
Try eating on slices of bell pepper, or cucumber slices! You could also make chips out of a low carb pita or low carb tortilla for a nice low carb snack!
