Layered Chicken Salad #Sundaysupper
Author: Marlene Baird
Prep time:
Total time:
Serves: 8
You can make this as a full salad and serve immediately or put them in mason jars for a salad to go. I don’t suggest that you purchase rotisserie chicken. It has a lot of fat. Instead, I just pan fried chicken breasts with salt and lemon pepper. Let them cool, then shred. NOTE: This salad dressing should be kept cold. If you can’t keep it cold, use it within 45 minutes of removing it from the fridge.
