This Waldorf Chicken salad is not only easy & delicious, but also low carb & paleo friendly.
This is one of those recipes that is great to make ahead when you know you have a busy day or two coming up. Make the whole chicken on the weekend (see the recipe mentioned below) and then you can use that to make more meals with less hands-on cooking needed.
When making this recipe, you’ll need to start with some cooked chicken. I highly recommend giving my Instant Pot Whole Chicken a try. It is great as an entree alone, but also an effortless way to start any dish that requires cooked chicken as an ingredient.
