Mexican Chicken Salad

| October 2, 2015 (Last Updated: June 1, 2020)

A spicy take on the chicken salad staple.

Jalapeño peppers add a little oomph to what’s already a delicious meal. We especially like the pairing of the chilies against fresh red apple – it adds a light sweetness that’s very refreshing and a splash of color that looks terrific on the plate. Try it on a bed of lettuce, or opt for that tasty chicken salad sandwich.
