Mom's Back to School Tarragon Chicken Salad Recipe

Mom's Back to School Tarragon Chicken Salad Recipe

One of my favorite features of the back to school season is that I get to make my own lunch menu again. ALL. MINE. No more grilled cheese (I wait until the first rainy day), hot dogs, nuggets of any kind, or peanut butter sandwiches. Instead, I make my mom's back to school tarragon chicken salad recipe that has me eating healthy, filling and delicious lunches for at least a few days.

I top a bed of mixed greens one day. The next, I'll melt a slice of havarti cheese on top for an open faced sandwich. And the third day of my tarragon chicken salad run I'll heap between two pieces of toasted multi grain bread and top with crisp romaine.

Mom's Choice

Have fun trying your own mix of ingredients. For crunch try, pine nuts, sliced almonds, celery, or diced apples. For alternate flavors, add a little curry powder or cumin. Try my tarragon chicken salad in a tortilla wrap for an easy boxed lunch option too.

And as it's back to school season and my full week meal prep is in full swing, I like making 4-6 chicken breasts to use for this recipe in a more. I season my chicken breasts with salt, pepper, crushed garlic and sometimes some cumin.

I place the chicken in a 9"x13" glass baking dish for 30 minutes on 425 degrees F or until juices run clear and internal temperature reaches 165. I let the breasts rest for 10 minutes on a cutting board that can be run through the dishwasher. Then I'll process into cubes for recipes and leave a few in tact for tacos, pulled chicken or pasta dishes during the week.
