Creamy Lemon Basil Chicken Salad is the perfect lunch dish and takes just a few minutes in the food processor and some pre-cooked chicken.

Chicken salads are a healthy easy way of having fun and quick lunches you don’t have to heat up and aren’t as boring as deli meat (or expensive! Have you ever done a cost analysis on how much deli meat -especially pre-packaged- costs?).

If you’d like to keep the recipe a bit healthier, it is January after all, you can cut down on the mayonnaise, or swap part of it for Greek yogurt or even some light sour cream.
