Earthy BLT Chicken Salad Recipe

Oh, yum! You’re going to love this BLT chicken salad dish. I was hanging with my sis, Said Kelley, chef-ing it up, and she mentioned that she’d never make this recipe cuz it “was too involved.” P.S. she’s not a big cook.
But then I reminded her that while I poached raw chicken for it, she could easily use a cooked rotisserie chicken to make it Seriously Simple. So then she was like, “Oh yeah! But I prefer you making it for me.”

It’s easy to follow my directions, and you’ll have a yummy salad to eat all week (this one makes enough for 8 servings).

The main points of this BLT chicken salad are the chicken, tomato, and bacon. But you have got to have some good sauce to finish it up.

This recipe uses cooked chicken and bacon. If you wish to poach your chicken and need to cook/crumble your bacon add 20 to 25 minutes to your prep time.

If you love chicken caesar salad, you'll love this BLT chicken salad. This salad is quite similar to the former, but better!
