20 Low-Carb Beat-the-Heat Chicken Salads to Make from Rotisserie Chicken found on KalynsKitchen.com

Beat-the-Heat Low-Carb Chicken Salads to Make from Rotisserie Chicken is certainly timely for me because Utah has already had lots of hot, hot, hot days this year, with probably more to come. I love salads all year round, but when it’s hot outside a cool salad is absolutely the perfect lunch, and I’ve posted hundreds of salad recipes on Kalyn’s Kitchen through the years.

Leftover rotisserie chicken is an ingredient that often inspires me to create new salads, and many of these 20 Low-Carb Chicken Salads are favorite salads I make over and over during the summer. And these salads are easy enough you can even make them on a hot summer day when you don’t really want to cook!

I updated this collection of Beat-the-Heat Low-Carb Chicken Salads with a few salads that I’ve enjoyed recently, and I’m sharing it for this week’s Recipe Round-Up, where I share things on Friday that you might want to make over the weekend. And it’s Thursday night, not Friday, but tomorrow I’m leaving my house at 5:00 A.M. to save spots for the Handcart Days Parade that members of my family have attended for more years than we can even count. So I hope no one minds if we get this party started a little early!

Tips for Tasty Low-Carb Chicken Salad:

  1. If you shop at Costco, look for their already cooked-and cut-up packages of rotisserie chicken to make chicken salad prep even easier!
  2. If you have time, marinating the cut-up chicken in dressing for 20-30 minutes before you stir the salad together will add flavor to chicken salads.
  3. Most every type of chicken salad can keep in the fridge for a few days, but for best flavor I like to have a little extra dressing to stir in to refresh the flavors in leftover chicken salad.

  1. I can.ot find your recipe of chi ken avacado salad with cilantro n lime juiice made with cottage cheese and greek yogurt instead of mayo. Please help.thank you.

    • You must be thinking of another blog; I don’t have a recipe like that. If it was featured on a round-up post on my site, you could try entering the ingredients into the search bar, but I can’t think of a salad like that which I am aware of.

  2. Kalyn, I love the convenience of using rotisserie chicken and use it in my chicken salad recipe all of the time. It's a great time-saver and sure beats heating up a kitchen more than necessary in the summer. Have a great Independence Day/4th of July!

  3. Karen, cilantro stems are used in recipes a lot in some Asian countries, but for salads or Mexican dishes I cut off the stems from the whole bunch, just below where the leaves start, and then chop the rest. So there's some stems in the chopped part, but not the thickest lower stems.

  4. I was looking at some of the recipes that called for fresh cilantro, and have a question… how do you prep it? Chop stems and all? Or pluck leaves and toss stems?

    Thanks.
    Karen

  5. Cathi, so glad it was useful for you!

  6. Thanks for sharing these great recipe ideas. Cooking nutritious meals that don't take too much time to prepare is important when you are trying to lose weight or just stay in shape. Eating healthy should be simple and accessible to everyone, and recipes using rotisserie chicken left overs can't get any easier!

  7. Thanks Kiran; so glad you like the ideas.

  8. Wow! Every salad is so distinct and filled with summery colors and flavors!! Everything is more delicious with leftover rotisserie chicken 🙂
