Easy Chicken Salads

When you are moving, as I have been for the last couple weeks, you need quick and easy meals. Meals that don't take a lot of preparation or equipment since everything is in boxes. Moving was the prefect time for me to use the Tyson Grilled Chicken coupon I had received for free from being a Foodbuzz publisher. Lucky for me, Albertsons was having a buy one get one free so I got two yummy bags of grilled chicken. My only hestitation is that Tyson didn't have an organic option. So Tyson, if you're reading this, we want organic, free-range chicken options. After all, Happy Chickens, make Happy Consumers.

Macaroni Grilled Chicken Salad.
I stole a little (well actually A LOT) of help from Fresh & Easy for this salad. I love their readymade pasta salad section. You could certainly make your own pasta salad but I was in a hurry and starving when I put this together. It's macaroni salad with corn, black beans and red peppers to which I added the Tyson Oven Roasted Diced Chicken Breast. It was delicious. I have some leftover for lunch today which I can't wait to eat.

These are the 2 bags that I bought. The chicken tasted fresh and had nice flavor. It definitely saved a lot of time in preparing both salads.

Ok, next easy salad. Organic mixed greens topped with Tyson Grilled Chicken Strips. Not shown are the tons of croutons I added as well as balsamic dressing. YUM!

Look who I saw in my backyard. Cute little Easter bunny made his appearance last weekend. I hope to see him again soon.

Do you have any easy chicken or salad recipes to share with me? We are still unpacking, carpeting, painting and so so much more. I can't wait to start spending more time in my new kitchen.


  1. The salad looks delish. I have never tried those bags before, might have to.


  2. I have had those grilled and ready salads before- they are delicious and perfect for salads or to add to basic ingredients- I have used them a lot to kick up a cheese quesadilla or thrown them in to make a side salad a meal!
