Keto Chicken Salad 

My favorite thing about this chicken salad is the sugar-free dressing. I keep this dressing recipe on-hand and use it for tuna salad or egg salad too.

Here’s what I used to make my sweet and tangy dressing: 

  • Sugar-free mayo
  • Powdered erythritol 
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Poppy seeds
  • Salt
  • Garlic powder
  • Olive oil

Here’s what I put in my chicken salad: 

  • Chicken breast – Save time and use rotisserie chicken. You can also use canned chicken or leftover chicken thighs. 
  • Mixed salad greens – use your favorite lettuce
  • Blue Cheese – if you don’t like blue cheese you can use feta cheese as a replacement
  • Walnuts – these are optional. You can replace them with other nuts or leave nuts out entirely.
  • Red Onion
  • Avocados
  • Fresh blueberries 

Easy Keto Lunch 

Salad is basically my go-to decision for lunch when I’m on keto. That’s why I had to find a way to make a salad that’s completely different from other ones.

How To Customize It

If you ever want to customize it, this salad is really easy to change. Use a different dressing – this one change will make it taste completely different. 

Add some cubed extra-sharp cheddar for a surprising bite. 

You can also throw in more diced fruit like strawberries or chopped apples. 

Remember when you add more ingredients to recalculate your macros so you stay within your keto goals. 

What To Serve With It 

Honestly, this salad is so filling, I don’t need to eat very much with it. If you want to eat this as a light dinner, eat some keto cheesy garlic bread on the side. It will round out the meal and make it even more filling.

Place chicken in a gallon-sized freezer bag. Pour half of the sauce over the chicken, reserving the remaining sauce for the salad. Seal the bag and toss to coat. Allow it to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours to overnight.

Preheat a double burner grill over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium. Add the chicken breast and cook until done, about 6 minutes on each side. (Cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of the chicken breast. Check for an internal temperature of 160 degrees.)

Keep warm but allow the chicken to rest for 20 minutes before slicing.

Prepare salad with mixed greens, blue cheese, walnuts, red onion, avocados, blueberries, and chicken. Drizzle with remaining dressing and toss to coat.
