Keto Loaded Chicken Salad

Keto Loaded Chicken Salad

Do you love chicken salad as much as I do? It’s incredibly versatile and often tastes better the day after it’s made. I call that food that waits for me! And food that waits is the very best kind.

Whether you enjoy it as a wrap or on a bed of fresh greens with some avocado or tomato, I think you’ll find that this “loaded” version of chicken salad hits the spot for a cold plate of warm flavors.

You can also use my new egg white wrap recipe to make an on-the-go lunch! 

Last, while this recipe calls for canned chicken, you can use any cooked chicken in the same amounts.

Higher protein or higher fat? The version as written is made with Greek yogurt and only 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise for those of you who are focusing on higher protein meals. Use a Greek yogurt with minimal ingredients. I like to use 5% milkfat Fage. 

To make this Keto Loaded Chicken Salad recipe higher fat, you can use 8 ounces of mayonnaise (total) and omit the Greek yogurt.
