I love chicken salad but have struggled for a long time to make chicken salad at home that tasted as good as others I have tried. Well, I'm still experimenting with what I actually put in my chicken salad, but one thing is always the same. I roast my own chicken. It's so delicious!! This would be great as a meal too along with your favorite side dish!
I use bone-in chicken breasts. You will need some lemon juice, EVOO, salt, pepper and garlic powder. I start by lining my pan with parchment paper for easy clean up. These can get pretty messy so this step is really important to me!! :) If you decide to use parchment, PLEASE be sure it can withstand high temperatures and keep an eye on it as they cook. Lay chicken breasts on parchment, meat side up. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
When meat is done, remove from oven and allow to rest for 5-10 minutes before chopping.
All ready to make that chicken salad!!
