Pulled Chicken Salad

It’s been SOOO hot here in St. Louis, I’ve been looking for meals that won’t heat up my kitchen, so last week we decided on sandwiches.

Store-bought rotisserie chicken is always perfect chicken salad! This Pulled Chicken Salad recipe is our favorite go-to chicken salad recipe for sandwiches or to serve on a bed of lettuce. 

I usually have pulled rotisserie chicken from Costco in my freezer, but if I’m in a real hurry, I’ve even made this pulled chicken salad with canned chicken……..use what you have! This recipe is one to keep on hand all year long.
