Easy Peasy Chicken Salad

chicken saladEating healthfully doesn’t have to be complicated, expensive, or bland. Take this simple salad for example…

5 oz of rotisserie chicken (I know you can’t see it all; it’s mixed up in the greens!)
1/2 head of romaine hearts
Juice of one lemon
1Tbsp Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper


Cheap– 5 heads of lettuce on sale at the store this week for $4.99

Bag of lemons– $4.99

Chicken– $4.99

See a price trend here?!? Ha!

The other items were already on hand.

My lunch cost for today? About $3.00.

Flavorful, too.

You could certainly add some other vegetables, but I was in a hurry and didn’t feel like chopping up other items.  This was a full meal in itself!

Bonus: I threw the used lemons down the disposal to disinfect and clean it.
