Traditional Southern Chicken Salad
Chicken salad sandwiches are a great way to get chicken breast recipes into your diet. Loaded with protein and low in fat chicken breasts are the most called upon meat if you are looking to get healthier in your eating habits. Easy delicious salads are always welcomed especially in these rushed environments we live in. The best healthy salads are usually ones that you will make that include healthy ingredients and also include a healthy way to cook them. Just because you are eating chicken breast recipes doesn’t always mean you are eating healthy. If you are deep frying a chicken breast then any healthy factors you were trying to include in your diet go out the window.
Your best healthy salads are always the kinds that minimize any added fat into them. If you consider easy delicious salads as a way to get lean cuts of chicken into them then you are on your way to healthier eating. Don’t then go ahead and drown them in mayonnaise or other less healthy sauce options. Try to incorporate extra virgin olive oil into the equation since it’s health benefits are widely accepted. Never feel that the recipe you deicide to cook should be adhered to religiously especially if you feel it doesn’t live up to the standards you have for you and your fellow diners.There is a question regarding which came first the chicken or the egg. This has been debated to the highest levels and from these debates we have concluded that; no one is really sure. The fact that they are both available to us for many different recipes is the only fact we should concern ourselves with. Chicken salad has been a great go to food since the first time someone decided to add chicken to bread.
Chicken is not the only way we have decided to add a meat or fish product to sandwiches and recipes. You have a wide variety of selections like chicken, tuna, turkey and egg salad sandwiches. With these sandwiches many times it is common to add mayonnaise, celery, onions or whatever veggie is your favorite. This mix is great since it will stay well in the fridge for that late night snack. The spices are also always up to the cook and vary from one palate to the next. They are easy to prepare and assemble and if you try hard enough you can come up with a healthy alternative to artery clogging mayonnaise and your arteries will cheer for joy.
If you take the time to decide ahead then your choices for what is better for you will always be available to add to a recipe that you might not exactly like.
