Chicken and Berry Salad is such stunning and fabulous way of making the most of your leftover chicken breast meat combined with fresh juicy, succulent blackberries and strawberries and a fresh spring mix with a wonderful refreshing Blackberry Mint Balsamic Dressing to tie it all together.Let’s face it, we love chicken because it fits in our budget these days more so than most of our other choices of meat from the market. Chicken can get awfully boring to eat all the time if you don’t have a plan for jazzing it up, let alone having it on day 2. I like to make the most of my leftovers every time, so that means when I make it there needs to be a plan B for the leftovers

 

My plan B would have to be clever, yet amazing …

I decided on making a healthy, delicious, Chicken Salad using my leftover chicken breast meat from roasted Mojito Chicken with juicy blackberries and succulent strawberries, as well as mixed greens for my Plan B. I also whipped up some of my favorite delicious homemade Blackberry Mint Balsamic Dressing to complete my salad. I have to tell you it turned out wonderful. The entire family enjoyed it.
