Roasted Garlic Chicken Salad
I am SO excited for this new year to start and to get this Whole30 challenge underway. I am already trying to prepare for this “carb flu” everyone talks about as the last few days have been spent in the mountains with my hubby drinking wine and eating Triscuits. I feel super prepared though as I have started making most of our dinners whole30 over the last couple weeks. I made this chicken salad after I made this Roasted Garlic Mayo and OH MAN. So full of flavor and just gets better everyday in the fridge. I brought this down to my parents house after I made it and my mom raved! She, as well as my sisters & hopefully all of our hubbies will be taking on the challenge together! I am overjoyed that they have jumped on this train with me and the support with be crucial for all of us. I have made the first weeks meal plan for Matt and I and shared it with my fam. If it all goes well, I will share them here once this thing is over!
Back to this chicken salad. It is the perfect source of protein and healthy fats and I enjoyed it in little bell pepper cups! I think I will also be eating it out of lettuce wraps with an apple on the side for the perfect lunch. If you are doing whole 30 this month too, let me know! We can do this!
Here is the bulk of what we are working with.
Perfectly flavored and delish!
Bell pepper cups are totally a thing…

How many servings does this make?
DO YOU USE RAW BELL PEPPERS OR ARE THEY COOKED? THEY LOOK RAW
Raw? The recip states roasted and it links to roasted.
Raw what? I link to my roasted garlic mayo recipe for the directions on how to roast the garlic!
Your recipe calles for ROASTED RED PEPPERS, but you’re saying you use raw…confused.
Ohhh Yes you use roasted red peppers in the chicken salad and I just served them in raw red peppers!
I have not had any wings better than these, so delicious!! I agree that you do not need to marinate. They were perfect, and my husband wants me to make all the time. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!!

Love Primal Kitchen, so glad you loved it!!
