Five minute cilantro chicken salad

Okay, this will take more than five minutes if you don’t have cooked chicken breasts. However, my suggestion is to cook two extra chicken breasts the next time you roast some in the oven (as I did) and then you can turn it into chicken salad the next day. Same goes for the hard boiled egg. I had made up a bunch because B eats them for breakfast, so I just peeled one, diced it, and added it to the chicken salad. Easy!


Two cooked chicken breasts chopped or shredded

1/4 cup of real mayonnaise

The juice of two small lime wedges

1 green onion chopped finely

2-3 tbs of chopped fresh cilantro

1 hard boiled egg, peeled and finely diced

Salt and pepper

Optional: Rye bread, provolone cheese slices


Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix. Add salt and pepper to your taste. Enjoy! So easy!

Now you could eat it as is.

Or you could put it on rye bread with a slice of provolone and grill it in a pan for a few minutes.
