Crispy Chicken Salad with Cheddar & Bacon Kraft Fresh Take #KraftFreshTake

Have you tried the Kraft Fresh Takes I was talking about earlier this month when I made the Loaded Mac & Cheese Cups with Cheddar & Bacon. Since then we’ve been using them in a few ways. I was given a new challenge to make a recipe in under 30 minutes with leftovers using my Fresh Take flavor. It’s a favorite of mine too! Try this delicious Crispy Chicken Salad.

We really like to use them on chicken tenders and one package makes so many of them. Even with all these pieces of chicken I still could have done a few more.

As you know I’ve been doing a lot to stop waste and save where I can so I’ve really focused in on what portions we eat so we really don’t end up with many leftovers unless I’m doing it on purpose.  When I make these, though,  I always make extra because they are so great to have on hand. A quick warm up and I have an easy lunch for Gavin or chopped up pieces for Sawyer to eat at dinner.  Crispy Chicken Salad with Cheddar & Bacon Kraft Fresh Take #KraftFreshTake #momspotted

When it’s chopped up and cold there are so many great ways to use it but my favorite is on top of salads.

I’ve shared before about how I make my week’s worth of salads all at once to make sure it all gets used and eaten. I have lunch and dinner ones and all they need are the wet ingredients like meat, eggs, or tomatoes.

One of my favorite new salads is my Crispy Chicken Salad. It’s really easy to make. If you make salads like me you only want cucumbers and spring mix when you meal prep. Then add hard boiled egg, tomatoes, kraft fresh take chicken, and bacon crumbles the day you make it.

Then drizzle with honey mustard dressing across your crispy chicken salad for the perfect finishing touch!

The best part is that since you are using the chicken cold and most of this you can have on hand and ready it could take you as little as 10 minutes to put together. It’s easily transportable making it easy to take to work and while it isn’t the most healthy salad, if you watched portion size, kicked the dressing and bacon, and drank it with water it can still be a better option.

    Yup…I’m gonna look for that chicken salad at the grocery tomorrow! You talked about it earlier today on fb and now its 11 pm and I see the pics of exactly how you made it. All of a sudden I really, really want this salad! Now. Hubby would think me crazy if I got out of bed to go buy it right this minute though, lol. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  2. Christina says

    Yum! When I made the chicken tenders for my kids a few weeks ago, that is what I did with the leftovers for lunch the next day.

  3. This just looks so good. I love cold chicken on my salad (though I am trying to go vegetarian so this is bad timing).

  4. Jackie says

    The salad looks delicious! What a great idea for an easy dinner

  5. Yum! I love the idea of prepping a lot of salads at once. Makes it so much easier to eat better when you are busy and looking for a quick meal. I love the idea of the added protein with the chicken too and that it would add some nice crunch with the Fresh Take topping.

    I am definitely going to need to try this recipe. I need to start eating healthier and I love all the ingredients you used. Plus, it will give me a chance to use one of those Kraft Fresh Takes. I also like that you were able to make a weeks worth of salads. So easy just to open the fridge and take one out. Saves time on preparing something to eat every day! Thanks for posting this!

  12. This looks like you can make these ahead of time like for the week. Looking good mama thanks for the idea. I love chicken too! Kraft has many ideas for all meals. I go there many times to get ideas too. Hey now I only have to come here for recipes. woo hoo! Thanks girlfriend.
