  1. Place the chicken breasts into a pot of hot water and bring to a boil. Cook for about 20 minutes until cooked through. Shred the chicken. I shred my chicken in a stand mixer but you can use two forks as well. 

  2. Add the noodles to a pot of salted boiling water and cook until al dente. This should take about 10 minutes. Drain, rinse, and add to a boil. 

  3. Add the chicken and the rest of the ingredients to the noodles. Mix, using two spoons, until well combined. 

  4. Allow to cool, serve, and enjoy your chicken salad.

  1. Meal Prep Tip: This Chicken Salad is great for meal prep! Prepare the chicken and chop the veggies in advance, storing them separately. Assemble the salad just before serving for the freshest taste.

  2. Customize Your Crunch: Add your favorite nuts or seeds for an extra crunch. Almonds, walnuts, or sunflower seeds work well and add a delightful texture to the salad.

  3. Dressing Variation: Experiment with different dressings to suit your taste. A zesty lemon vinaigrette, honey mustard, or a balsamic glaze can all complement the flavors of this Chicken Salad.

  4. Protein Swap: Not a fan of chicken? No problem! Try this recipe with grilled shrimp, turkey, or even tofu for a delicious alternative.

  5. Serve with Style: Elevate the presentation by serving the Chicken Salad in lettuce cups, on a bed of mixed greens, or in a freshly baked bread bowl for a festive touch.

  6. Chill and Enjoy: For an extra refreshing experience, chill the salad in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before serving. This allows the flavors to meld together and enhances the overall taste.

  7. Wine Pairing: Consider pairing this Chicken Salad with a crisp, chilled white wine or a sparkling beverage for a delightful and festive combination.
