Agree on the chicken salad
Chicken salad is a staple for me. I add a little broccoli for some extra crunch. I will roast a whole chicken and use what is leftover from dinner ( usually 1 breast, 1 drumstick, wings and carcas meat). My basic recipe is;
Leftover chicken meat, cubed 0 carbs
1/2 cup diced celery 2.2 carbs
1/2 cup broccoli florets 2.3 carbs
1/2 cup mayo 0 carbs
2 or 3 tblsp. sour cream 1.5 carbs
1/2 tsp. garlic pepper
1/2 tsp. onion powder
salt to taste
This makes a great snack or lunch. I often roll it up in romaine lettuce leaves and I have even used it as filling for a roast beef roll-up.
To me, it is filling and satisfying with hardly any carbs.
I have also done this recipe using left over roast beef.
Hope this is helpful.
