So many uses with that mixer.
Did you know that your handheld or standing mixer has many uses other than mixing cake batter? Yep! One of these other uses includes shredded chicken. Say what?! When I learned this I was on top of the world. I had been shredding chicken by hand for the longest of time, and this took forever.
Now that I know that I can easily shred chicken with the mixer, things have gotten a lot easier in the kitchen. This rotisserie chicken salad is so easy to put together!
Chicken, chicken all about chicken.
Chicken is one of those things that we always go to when we are out of ideas for dinner. It is just such an easy protein to put with sides, and everyone loves chicken. Another hack for this chicken salad is the fact that it uses already pulled rotisserie chicken breasts. Thank you, Costco! If you do not have a Costco membership, you can boil chicken breasts, pull rotisserie chicken off the bone or you can buy canned chicken pieces.
Believe me though, rotisserie chicken has a lot of flavor! If I were to choose among all the different options for chicken, I would go with rotisserie chicken.

We love to eat rotisserie chicken for dinner. It is so good! Even though it comes with lots of flavor, I still like to add some seasoning to this rotisserie chicken salad recipe. I only added a ranch seasoning packet, onion powder, a little salt and pepper. You could also add chopped green onions.
This adds enough flavor to make this chicken salad absolutely delicious!
