THIS IS AN ORIGINAL RECIPE BY SUZANNE FROM WWW.KETOKARMA.COM


PREP TIME: 10 MINUTES • COOK TIME: 10 MINUTES • YIELD: 3 SERVINGS

  • 5 slices bacon
  • 1 1⁄2 cups cubed cooked chicken (about 12 ounces; see notes)
  • 1⁄3 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons ranch dressing
  • 1⁄2 stalk celery, chopped (optional)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 6 butter lettuce leaves, for serving
  • Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish (optional)

Notes: You can use precooked rotisserie chicken. If you prefer, you can spoon this chicken salad into avocado halves instead of lettuce leaves.

  1. In a skillet over medium heat, fry the bacon until crispy. Set aside on a paper towel–lined plate to cool.
  2. Place the cooked chicken in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Add the mayonnaise, ranch dressing, and celery, if using.
  3. Chop the bacon and add to the chicken mixture. Fold all the ingredients with a spoon until the chicken is evenly coated. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Divide the chicken salad evenly among the lettuce leaves. Garnish with chopped parsley, if desired.
