I have expressed my love for plain vegetable salad on this beautiful platform with a tasty recipe, however it is nothing compared to the love I recently developed for the chicken variant, it is literally the bomb! This version of Chicken salad is none like you have ever seen fam, it is super filling and would carry you through even the toughest mornings. 

Healthy and packed with mouth watering goodies, it is one yummy breakfast option you shouldn’t ignore. 

Permit me to share my special chicken recipe with y’all. Please note that the ingredients below are not rigid and can definitely be tweaked to your satisfaction. The only non negotiable ingredient in the line up is the Chicken; it’s a Chicken Veggie salad after all. So the chicken is compulsory! 

Also remember that to make any type of salad it is always essential to use food gloves or wash your hands till they are clean to avoid food contamination.
