  • Summary

    This recipe fits perfectly into any low-carb eating plan. It’s also low in fat, high in protein and fiber, and has little to no sugar. Preheat oven to 350°F. Season the chicken tenders with salt and pepper, and bake in the oven until fully cooked, about 30 minutes or until the internal temperature of the chicken reads 165°F on a kitchen thermometer. Allow the chicken to cool and then dice into ¼- to ½-inch pieces. Transfer to a large bowl. Add all remaining ingredients to the bowl and stir to combine. Let the salad rest for a bit and serve on a bed of green or in lettuce cups. This mixture can also be used to make sandwiches.
