Healthy Spring Chicken Salad

Happy Spring my lovelies! Can you believe that it is already Spring? The flowers are blooming, the birds are chirping, the leaves are growing and turning green! But yet, I still have my winter chubbiness on me. I have been going through my recipes and found a recipe for a simple lemon pepper chicken and was thinking of what all I could make with a cooked chicken breast. I came up with dozens of recipes but one stood out the most. A Healthy Spring Chicken Salad complete with strawberries and cranberries!

My family loves a good salad, in fact we have one for dinner every week. What I love about salads is that it can be made to taste exactly how you want it! If you don’t like Feta, just switch out for a cheese that you do like. With this salad, the chicken and bacon can be prepared ahead of time and the onion can be sliced ahead of time as well. Without further ado, my Healthy Spring Chicken Salad recipe.
