5 Minute Ranch Chicken Salad recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

As I was putting my lunch together today, I realized that I’ve never shown you my go-to 5 minute lunch. So very simple and it uses ingredients that I regularly keep in my fridge.

If you already have produce boxes set up, if you happen to love this ranch dip as much as I do and if you frequently have leftover chicken in the refrigerator; you are just a couple minutes away from a very tasty lunch.

If you don’t already have all of this in your refrigerator, it will only take a few extra minutes to chop up a handful of vegetables and stir together some ranch dip. I’ve made this with store-bought rotisserie chicken as well and it is just as tasty that way.

However you make it, this is a great lunch. Spread the chicken salad between a couple slices of your favorite bread or toss it into a simple garden salad. The salad will keep nicely in the refrigerator for a couple days.

    I’ll have mine as a sammy please. Your crisper drawer description on the produce box page fits ours to a tee and I can’t wait to show what you do to Bev.
