BEST Skinny Rotisserie Chicken Salad

This chicken salad is so good! It’s my “go-to” and it’s perfect to make and enjoy for a few days. My mom’s wonderful housekeeper, Dina, created this recipe. She makes it for my mom almost every week. My husband and I tasted it while visiting and we were hooked. I did make some skinny modifications like using light mayo and only using white meat chicken. Each ½ cup serving has only 112 calories and 6 grams of fat.

Helpful Tips About this Recipe

Makes 5 cups total Each serving, ½ cup or more, as desired

Shopping Tips
Most supermarkets sell cooked rotisserie chicken. My market sells 3 kinds. Lemon/Pepper chicken, regular and even an organic, vegetarian feed with no hormones. That’s what I used. They do vary in size. This recipe calls for 4 cups of diced chicken breasts. Since I only use the white meat, create another skinny meal with the leftover dark meat. Or, freeze the dark meat for a later use.

Prep Tips

This recipe is very flexible. I included the amount of carrots, celery, and onions I like. You can add more or add less, to your liking.

Serving Tips
I like to serve this chicken salad as an open-faced sandwich. Spread 1 slice of Milton’s multi-grain bread or your favorite bread with yellow mustard. Spread 1/2 cup of chicken salad on top of the mustard. Top the sandwich with sliced tomato. So yum!
To create a main course salad,  prepared a mixed greens and veggies salad and toss with my skinny ranch.  Top the salad with 1 scoop of chicken salad.
