A few days ago, I wrote about tips for eating clean when you just don’t have time. In that post, I talked about always having a bottle of clean salad dressing at the ready. This is why…
Recipes like this can be a lifesaver when dinner has to be on the table now, and you haven’t even checked to see what you have in the fridge. I served this dish over a bed of spinach and it was a very filling and complete meal.
This idea actually came from a leftover rotisserie chicken I had made a couple nights before. I had to use it up, and this is what I had on hand. You can do this with canned chicken as well if you can find a clean, canned chicken. Trader Joe’s has one that is clean. Canned isn’t always optimal, but it’s always a good idea to have a can or two in the pantry for a last minute meal. It certainly beats the drive thru!
- Chicken (I used canned for the photo above)
- Whatever veggies you have in your fridge, chopped and mixed with it. ( I used a red bell pepper and red onions, but anything will work here.)
- Clean salad dressing (I used clean tarragon dressing)
You could potentially even mix a little brown rice or quinoa with this to get a nice grain salad. There are about a million different things you could do with this, so get creative!
