Chicken fennel salad



On busy days I love taking lunch with me or having something that is easy to prepare and ready in a flash. This salad fills all those boxes. It’s delicious and very easy and quick to make if you have leftover chicken. In fact it is a good idea to precook some chicken and have that stashed in batches in the fridge. If you know you’re gonna be home late, just take out and let if defrost to use in the evening. If you haven’t: poached the chicken really doesn’t require much time either.
