I think it’s a great example of how healthy does not have to be boring and it’s a great way to get in A LOT of containers in one meal. Plus pretty much everyone likes it! It’s a challenge group favorite by far!!Creamy Chicken Salad w/Honey Mustard Dressing

Serve it efficiently! Bag it up and use a plastic force. easy, quick, doesnt take up much space.
 

Makes 4 servings and extra dressing!! The color coded portion control container count is 2 green, 1 red, 1/2 purple, 1/2 blue and 1/2 orange.

 Ingredients:

  • 3 cups chopped rotisserie chicken breast (boneless / skinless)
  • 1/2 cup chopped green apple
  • 1/2 cup seedless red grapes, cut in half
