Spicy chicken salad

Jump to Recipe

On busy days midweek there´s hardly ever time to cook, let alone cook something complicated. This will sound so office like, but meal prepping saves a lot of time and money, and this is the perfect recipe to meal prep and take with you in a tupperware to work or school, or to have at home and take out of the fridge when needed.

You could easily cook the chicken beforehand and then just assemble the salad when you want to eat.

The key here is the chicken, it´s so well seasoned that it all tastes great, plus is a really healthy recipe overall.

Now, this is for two servings, but you can of course change the quantities needed to make this for more people, or to eat it through the week.
