Chipotle Chicken Salad

Chipotle Chicken Salad

Chipotle chicken salad is one of my favourite lunch ideas, especially on days that I have leftover chicken (which makes the recipes very fast to prepare!) I like to eat it by itself, served with a string of cheese and some sliced avocado.

It would also be good served as a wrap on a low-carb, high fibre tortilla, or if you didn’t want to wilt the spinach and instead wanted to serve the chicken salad on a bed of fresh spinach, it would make a great salad.
