Tales of a Grocery Store Chicken: Pesto Chicken Salad

Standard

I love being in the kitchen. I love trying out new things and testing new recipes. but sometimes after a long day at work I don’t want to spend 45 minutes prepping ingredients or an hour cooking. I just want something healthy (and hopefully points-plus friendly) on the table fast. So I’d like you to meet my long day dinner BFF. The grocery store chicken. Now I know I could roast a chicken myself, but that takes more pre-planning skill than I generally have. This sucker is four meals easy or more depending how you fix him up. So don’t judge and try this quick yummy chicken salad.

8oz Chicken Breast, removed from bones and chopped
