Honey Almond Crusted Chicken Salad

Tonight for dinner I made a recipe from the archives: Honey Almond Crusted Chicken, but added it to a salad. By now, you all know that I don’t like chicken but I actually really liked this!! In fact, I can’t wait to eat my leftovers for lunch tomorrow 🙂

The recipe is so easy to make. A few hours before you serve, hard boil a few eggs and then refrigerate them so they are cold for the salad. Then while your chicken is baking in the oven prepare the rest of your salad.

The rest of the salad is pretty self explanatory and really easy to assemble. You can serve the salad with your choice of dressing, I used poppyseed and it was delish!
