If any of you live close to a Whole Foods Market then you will know exactly what I am talking about… Whole Foods=Food Heaven! Sure its expensive… its nickname is “Whole Paycheque” after all.. but that doesn’t stop me from filling up my basket with all things healthy and delicious. Its easy to rack up a hefty bill when you say you are just going to stop in there for a quick snack… especially when you find things as unique and delicious as thing…. Blackened Chicken Salad.
My man and I discovered this one day after a Crossfit workout… and became addicted instantly. Its not cheap… and its not light either (in weight) so a medium sized container costs around $20… and in my house only lasts about 5 minutes! Its because of this I decided to try and recreate it… and I did!
-1/4 cup dijon mustard -1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
-1 large carrot grated -1/2 red onion diced
-4-5 scallions chopped -1/3 cup of blackening seasoning
Season all chicken breasts on both sides with blackening seasoning. Fry chicken in a hot skillet until fully cooked and set aside to cool. Once chicken has cooled dice the chicken into bite sized pieces. The chicken can be as messily chopped as you like, there is no need for the pieces to be a uniform size, so don’t stress.
For the dressing, mix together mayonnaise, apple cider vinegar and dijon mustard. Set aside.
Combine chopped chicken breast, grated carrot, red onion and scallions together in a large bowl.
Pour dressing over the chicken mixture and combine thuroughly.
Garnish with some extra green onions and enjoy!!
This dish is fantastic on s sandwich, a wrap, a salad or just on its own, so be as creative as you like!
