Ranch Chicken Salad

I love keeping chicken salad on hand for easy lunch for the week. Buying a small container of the pre-made stuff is so expensive, and never as good as homemade. A few other chicken salad recipes I keep on rotation are Chicken Waldorf Salad, Chicken Salad with Avocado, Chicken Salad with Lemon and Dill and Cilantro Chicken Salad.

This recipe happened by accident, I had some leftover ranch dressing and some leftover chicken breast and combined the two and loved how it tasted! Serve it in a wrap, over lettuce, make a chicken melt or stuffed in a tomato or avocado!

You can also buy pre-cooked chicken, or make shredded chicken in the slow cooker by covering it with chicken broth and cooking it 4 hours on low.

Making ranch dressing from scratch is easy, you just need buttermilk which is naturally light, a little mayo and some herbs and spices.
