Chicken Salad (Paleo-Style)

Remember, this post, about my dry feet??? A sweet friend of mine made lotion bars for Christmas and was kind enough to share one with me. I have been using the bar on my elbows (real dry) and my feet (cracking dry) and the dryness is getting better. My hands are thankful for this lotion bar too! 

Thanks All Kinds of Goodies for sharing this wonderful feet/elbow saving lotion bar with me!!!!
Make sure you check out her website... She gives the lotion bar recipe and you can make your own!!!
BACK TO FOOD!!!! :)  

One thing that I LOVE about Paleo is color!  

I made this delicious Chicken Salad. I love Chicken Salad. This is my first attempt at a Paleo friendly recipe. I usually add chicken, apples, celery, almonds, s&p, mayo (sometimes Olive Oil, instead of Mayo). This recipe - cabbage, apples, celery, sun dried tomato, pepper, and olive oil.  Another classic - REVAMPED! More color this time and great flavor!

The Ingredients:
3 chicken breast
1/2 red cabbage
1 apple, minced
2 celery, minced
1 jar of sun dried tomato
fresh ground pepper
Olive Oil

The Directions:
Boil Chicken until completely cooked. Let cool.
Shred chicken. Add all ingredients. Mix well.

*** I will drain the sun dried tomatoes next time... juice very thick and almost too Olive Oil tasting. Overall the Chicken Salad is good!

I also made Micah a batch of finger food.
Look at that color!

The Ingredients:
Carrots, chopped and cubed
Chicken Broth (left over broth from the chicken salad chicken)

The Directions:
Add vegetables into the broth and add carrots. Boil for 5 minutes and add the rest of the vegetables.

Simple and Easy Finger Food with LOADS of Color! Just enough flavor for my 3 year old to enjoy too! Alright - me too!

  1. Just made this chicken salad, but had no sun-dried tomatoes. I substituted marinated artichoke hearts and pecans. I also added some lemon juice. Total paleo yum!
