NJBC Eats: Easy Rosemary Chicken Salad
By New Jersey Bariatric Center Staff | January 17, 2020
I was getting tired of eating the same thing for lunch everyday so I decided to make my own chicken salad. This chicken salad recipe which provides you with over 20g of protein can be a delicious addition to your weekly lunch menu. You can turn this simple recipe into chicken salad lettuce wraps, enjoy it with cucumbers or celery and more. If you don’t like fresh rosemary, fresh dill is a great alternative that I have also used.
