It’s a good night at home when the stove and mommy gets a break. Especially now that school is in session, my time to cook will be cut down dramatically by homework duty. Here is a quick and easy no cooking required chicken salad that will please the whole family.
No Cooking Required Chicken Salad
- Bag of H-E-B Veggie Delight Salad
- 1 cup of H-E-B Seasoned Croutons
- 1/2 can H-E-B Black Olives
- 1 can of fully cooked chunk chicken breast
- H-E-B dressing of your choice
1. Empty contents of bagged salad into a large bowl.
2. Add your croutons and black olives to the bowl.
3. Add the chicken to the bowl by breaking it up into smaller pieces with your fingers.
4. Toss with your hands and enjoy with your favorite dressing.
Because I knew we would have some leftover, I decided not to put on the dressing until we put the salad in our individual bowls. You can place the leftovers in a food storage container and have a quick, healthy meal for lunch the next day.
I’ve been doing more of my grocery shopping at H-E-B the last few weeks and I’m totally loving all the in-store coupons and Combo Loco deals. This week when you buy selected H-E-B bagged salad, you get a free dressing and free croutons! Talk about a cheap, easy and healthy meal for a busy weeknight.
Oh and while your at it, check out some of the other bloggers participating in the H-E-B Back to School Meal Maker Challenge. You’ll find great recipes, tips from Phil and learn all about the Meal Maker Challenge.
This looks really good! I could eat a salad everyday. Yum!
I never thought of putting black olives in chicken salad before. I love black olives! Going to have to try that out, mmm…
I like the idea of the croutons, olives and especially using a H-E-B dressing of your choice – healthier than mayonnaise!

I’ve always cooked the chicken for my chicken salads. Using prepared ingredients makes this recipe quick and easy.

I love HEB’s precooked chicken. I love to use it in Caesar salads! I’ve also used them in chicken enchiladas.

I have made salads like this one before. It is a quick and easy meal.
Thanks for this great idea, it’s so easy and I bet it tastes good! I just would have not thought about it myself, I’m glad you got me thinking 😀

That looks delicious, I like to make something like that with Ranch Dressing for hot summer nights.
I love not having to turn on the stove, too, and not really having to cook. I also give the dogs some of the chicken – they LOVE it.
We don’t have an H.E.B. here (I have been to one in Texas and I LOVE that store) but I usually use my Publix brand.
