Maybe you've got many favorite chicken salad recipes, but we assure you that the Mexican chicken salad will stay forever in your heart. It has a lot of winning points. For example, all ingredients are appropriate to be included in a weight-loss meal plan. Avocado, parsley, onions, and corn are rich in fiber, which helps digestion and fills you up, so you don't feel hungry for a long time. 

Secondly, you can cook it as a side dish at BBQs or as an entree on a busy night after a busy working day. Thirdly, the salad is well stored in a fridge. So if there are any leftovers, serve them for the next meal time, assembling and tossing the salad. Just try it once, and you will see how superb the combination of textures and flavors is here!

Weight Loss Tips

  • Do not overcook the chicken to avoid healthy nutrients evaporating. Besides, the meat will come out dry and rubbery.

  • If you are looking for a low-calorie chicken, choose a small and young bird that does not yet have a fatty layer.

  • Spices can make your food taste better, containing only a few calories.
