Frequent questions

Can I use chicken thighs?

I like to use chicken breasts because they are lean and flavorful. Boneless skinless chicken thighs are flavorful and incredibly juicy, which makes it great that you don’t want to use chicken breasts.

Can I brown the chicken?

I love the taste and look of grilled chicken, but you can brown it in a skillet if you don’t have a grill or outdoor grill. Check for doneness with a meat thermometer to avoid overcooking the chicken.

Can I use store-bought dressings?

Sure! I love the simplicity of this dressing, but a store-bought poppy seed dressing or balsamic vinaigrette would be delicious alternatives.

How do I preserve Strawberry Spinach Chicken Salad?

For easy meal prep, store cooked chicken, salad, and dressing in separate containers and combine just before serving. This salad can be stored for up to 3 days.

Can I Freeze Strawberry Balsamic Chicken Salad?

Cooked chicken breast can be frozen for up to 3 months, but we do not recommend freezing the salad.

What to serve with grilled chicken and strawberry salad?

The beauty of Grilled Strawberry Chicken Salad is that it is truly a meal in itself. If you want to complement the meal a bit more, serve it with Low Carb Keto Garlic Bread or Homemade Roasted Garlic Bread. And, since you’ve had a healthy dinner, you may want to treat yourself to a little dessert. Try my Mini Lemon Cheesecake, Mini Strawberry Cheesecake, or Mini Chocolate Cheesecake.
