Citrus Chicken Superfood Salad ~ Bulk Cooking ~ Chicken Kale Salad Recipe ~ Noreen’s Kitchen
Today we are using up the very last little bit of shredded chicken from the two we roasted and making a super healthy, citrus chicken super food salad! I am inspired by Elaine’s “big salad” a la Seinfeld but wanted to take a super healthy beginning of the new year, healthy goals approach here.
This salad starts with some chopped, fresh kale and baby spinach, blended together along with a healthy handful of matchstick carrots. I usually put out all the goodies and have everyone make their own salad. That way everyone gets what they like. I prefer a little bit of everything and a tasty dressing!
I added some of the shredded chicken. I have about 1 1/2 cups left which may not seem like a lot, but it is the perfect amount for the four of us to have a great, healthy dinner salad with super boosted nutrition!
I made up my salad using the greens and chicken along with some cooked and cooled quinoa, baby yellow, orange and red bell peppers which are filled with great vitamins, mineral and antioxidants. Then added some grape tomatoes and a healthy portion of grapefruit and orange segments. I used a canned citrus salad, packed in juice with no added sugar, that I like to keep in my pantry. If you live where you can get citrus free or cheap, then I think that would be great! Oranges in my area, right now are almost $1 each! Horrifying!
I added a handful of dried, organic, unsweetened, cranberries for a sweet note along with a healthy sprinkling of seeds. A mixture of chia, hemp and sunflower. You can also add some walnuts or pecans or toasted almonds as well if you prefer or in addition to the seeds.
I topped the whole thing off with a drizzle of a delicious orange citrus vinaigrette that I made and will share in an upcoming video! If you would like to see how to make the quinoa, let me know and I will be happy to share!
This salad is the perfect light meal. It really is filling with the cooked grains and all the hearty greens. Using the rainbow as your guide for adding veggies and fruits really makes for a colorful, delicious and nutritious salad that everyone will love! If you don’t like quinoa, you can always cook up some wheat berries which would also be great in this salad!
I hope that you give this citrus chicken, super food salad a try and I hope you love it! I also hope you love seeing how many delicious things we can make with just a couple of roasted chickens! Next up is using the bones to make some soup and stock for dinner and I can’t wait to share that with you soon!
