This delicious BLT Chicken Salad is a quick and healthy meal you need to add to your menu! This protein-packed recipe uses turkey bacon, pre-cooked chicken, avocado, tomato, and lettuce.

A traditional BLT is bacon, lettuce, and tomatoes on bread. This sandwich is a favorite for so many people, including me! But, making a BLT, adding chicken, and making a salad out of it is so much better (and healthier!). So, for this salad, I used:

  • For the “B” of the BLT Chicken Salad, I used turkey bacon! You can use regular bacon, but turkey bacon is low in fat and still tastes great. I used two strips (50 calories total) and microwaved them for 1 minute 40 seconds, between two sheets of paper towel.
  • For the “L” of the BLT Chicken Salad, I used lots of lettuce! This creates the bed of your bacon, lettuce, tomato, salad.
  • For the “T” in the BLT, I used grape tomatoes and sliced ​​them. I love grape tomatoes! Such a delicious, low calorie addition to any salad.
  • EXTRA: Although not usually in a BLT sandwich, for the salad I added some pre-cooked chicken I had in the fridge. I cooked a bunch of chicken this weekend in my Instant Pot, and it shredded beautifully. It was perfect for this salad.
  • EXTRA: lawyer! Simply because avocado is delicious with bacon, lettuce and tomatoes!

Prepare your salads in advance!

I like having all the ingredients ready to make a salad. It helps me eat it more often and keeps me from eating less healthy foods. Some of my tips include:

  • Buy pre-chopped bagged salad!
  • Keep cooked chicken handy. I usually make it on Sunday night and can use it for different meals throughout the week.
  • Have access to a rotisserie chicken. If I’m not making chicken on the weekends, I like to buy a rotisserie chicken to include in a variety of meals.
  • Prepare all the salad! Recently I was on a local TV spot for pre-made salad kits! Check out the salad kit tutorial here. Although I haven’t shared the BLT on this post, it would be easy to make a salad kit for the BLT Chicken Salad!
