Coleslaw Chicken Salad




A review of my blog archives reveals that I haven’t posted a recipe in over a year. Well, that’s about to change! Jim is the resident chef here at Grey Havens cottage, and he has been trying out some new recipes. This salad one is definitely a keeper! It is big on taste and small on calories. 

It features precooked chicken, either grilled or baked. Once the chicken cools down, the dish takes only a few minutes to put together. The fat-free mayonnaise dressing is light but has some tang, thanks to the addition of Dijon mustard, caraway seeds, apple-cider vinegar, and pepper. A coleslaw mix and chopped tomatoes provide the healthy vegetable components. And a bit of crumbled bacon on top makes your taste buds sing! 

This one-dish meal is a great for busy cooks, weight watchers, summertime, and potluck suppers. I hope you give it a try! Here is a link for a printable recipe:

  2. Looks and sounds delish! I purchased two rotisserie chickens last week and have really scrambled to get them used, but the price was right...two for 11.50. Can't really go wrong for that. This recipe sounds as if I might need to purchase more chicken this week. Thank you!
