Today I’m sharing one of my favorite new ways to serve chicken salad: with Sweet PotaTOASTS, from the makers of CAULIPOWER. The world’s first superfood toast! SO good! This complete meal has been my lunch for several days in a row – I can’t get enough. It’s quick, delicious, and filling!

How To Make Honey Mustard Chicken Salad

  1. Start this recipe my combining the chicken, chopped apple, dried cranberries and green onion (or chives) in a large bowl. Set this bowl aside.
  2. Now make the dressing in a small bowl. Stir together the Greek yogurt, mayo and mustard.
  3. Add the dressing to the chicken mixture and gently stir all ingredients together.
  4. If you’re going to serve this honey mustard chicken salad recipe on Sweet PotaTOASTS, you can toast these from frozen in the toaster, toaster oven or in an air fryer.

Best Ways To Serve Chicken Salad

  • After discovering Sweet PotaTOASTS, it’s seriously my new favorite way to enjoy lunch and breakfast! I love that these are so easy to pop, frozen, right into the toaster, toaster oven, or air fryer and have superfood ‘toast’ in minutes. The best thing since sliced bread!
  • This honey mustard chicken salad is also really delicious served as a dip: place the chicken salad mixture in a bowl and surround it with chips, crackers, veggies, thinly sliced apples and Sweet PotaTOASTS.
  • Of course, chicken salad is always yummy served in a wrap or on a croissant.
  • When I’m making lunch, I want it to be FAST! And this chicken salad recipe with a prep time of 15 minutes or less definitely delivers.
  • Instead of taking the extra step to cook up chicken, I like the shortcut of using a tender and flavorful rotisserie chicken! In my opinion, this also makes for the best chicken salad. So tasty! Many grocery stores even carry rotisserie chicken they’ve already cut up for you. It’s a little more expensive, but sometimes it’s just worth it!
  • If you’re planning on making this chicken salad for a crowd, this recipe easily doubles, triples, etc. I often make this recipe for pool parties and other get togethers. A colossal-sized rotisserie chicken will give you about 6 cups of chicken, which you could use for this recipe and triple all of the other ingredients!

How To Make Chicken Salad Whole30 Compliant

  • Instead of using 1/4 cup Greek yogurt, use a Whole30 Compliant mayo.
  • Be sure that the dried fruit you use is free of sugar. On the ingredients list, you should only see cranberries or cherries or whatever fruit you’re using.
  • Layer this delicious chicken salad on Sweet PotaTOASTS. They are made from real sweet potato slices. Sweet PotaTOASTS are a clean label, single ingredient, bread replacement.
