Chicken Salad With Raisins and Carrots

So many of us have crazy busy schedules so we are looking for quick fixes to cover meals both at home and on the go! Inflation is also a huge problem these days and staying on budget is harder than ever. Chicken salad is an easy and inexpensive dish that you can make in a variety of ways! This version is sweet, simple, healthy, and very cost-effective. 

Chicken Salad Ingredients

  • 1 lb of chicken (pre-cooked or not, your choice!)
  • 1 cup of shredded carrots
  • 1 cup of mayonnaise
  • 1 cup raisins
  • Salt (to taste)
  • Pepper (to taste)

To start you should prep all of the ingredients for your chicken salad.

Prepping your ingredients ahead of time is a key way to make the process of cooking easier because it will already be done as you follow the recipe.

  • Shred the chicken (pre-cooked or not, your choice!)
  • Shred the carrots (If you buy pre-shredded carrots, can skip this step.)
  • Measure out the 1 cup of carrots, mayonnaise, and raisins

Now that you are prepped and ready it is time to start putting it together!

  • First, put the shredded chicken into your mixing bowl if it is not already there. Make sure it is shredded as much as you want it to be before you move on to the next step. 
  • Next pour in the mayonnaise, carrots, raisins, salt, and pepper. 
  • Mix it all together and chill before eating! 

There are so many inexpensive, easy, budget-friendly variations on this chicken salad recipe. We will make some of them in upcoming videos! You can also change it up by adding other proteins to this mix. Canned tuna is a wonderful variation of this chicken salad recipe that will taste delicious both ways! Try it both ways a see which way you like it more!

We have all been looking for new things to do at home rather than going out to eat all the time. It saves money, keeps you occupied while you are at home, and you get a yummy snack out of it! How can you go wrong?
