This Cranberry Almond Chicken Salad Recipe will have you looking forward to lunch. This easy chicken salad is satisfying and full of flavor! Serve with rice for a tasty and filling meal.
I am a little obsessed with lunch recipes and ideas lately. My daughter just started kindergarten so packing a lunch box daily has taken over my brain!
I thought this Cranberry Almond Chicken Salad Recipe would be great in her lunch box. But . . . it never quite made it in there. I ate it all! Seriously, every last bite.
Chicken salad is usually slapped in between sliced bread or rolled up into a wrap. I decided to eat mine with Minute® Ready to Serve Rice. And I think that will be the way I eat it from now on. This chicken and rice is not bland and boring. It is simple yet full of flavor!
Minute® Ready to Serve Rice is perfect for back to school season. It’s portable container is ideal for lunch boxes. I like it for potion control. (I need that!)
Just remove the film cover. Then microwave for 60 seconds and serve. Fully cooked rice with nothing to add!
I wish I had these back when I worked full time in an office setting. It would’ve made my lunches so much better!
Mix up a batch of this Cranberry Almond Chicken Salad and serve with Minute® Ready to Serve Rice. It will power you through until dinnertime!
The white rice is great because it will go with just about anything. Make sure you try the Multi-Grain Medley. It is a blend of whole grains including brown rice, quinoa, barley, oats, wheat and rye. my new favorite thing!
