Chicken and Pomegranate Salad

chicken salad

It seems like I just blinked and October was already gone. So many things have happened this month, and there’s so much more to do in the next few months. Finally after procrastinating for years and years, I got my wisdom teeth out. They never bothered me, but after the birth of my daughter, they decided to try and grow in all of a sudden, and there was no room.

So that I can get some rest this week, I’ve filled the freezer with lots of ingredients that my husband and I can use to make quick and easy weeknight dinners. My favorite key item for a quick dinner is pre-prepared grilled and fried chicken. You can make just about any recipe with chicken, and starting with pre-prepared and cooked chicken makes recipes that much easier.

I’ve recently found NatureRaised Farms® at my local Target. I got a great deal on them and I love that the chicken is all natural with no added hormones or steroids*. NatureRaised Farms® Chickens are never given antibiotics either and fed a 100% Vegetarian Diet with No Animal Bi-Products.

NatureRaised Farms® is a great company too. Their products are animal welfare certified by Global Animal Partnership and 100% All Natural, with recognized and understandable ingredients.

For this salad recipe I started with NatureRaised Farms® Gluten Free Chicken Breast Nuggets. They work well not only as an after-school snack, but also in salads like this. Because pomegranates are in season and on sale, I wanted to make them the star of this salad. It’s a great way to introduce a new and different food to my kids in a fun delicious way. I mean what kid wouldn’t try a little pomegranate with their chicken nuggets? Yummy!

I also added some mandarin oranges in addition to the pomegranate and some pecans. For the dressing, I used a pre-made pomegranate vinaigrette I found at my grocery store. You could use any type of sweeter vinaigrette on this salad. French dressing would also be good with this.

These NatureRaised Farms® are available at Target in the freezer section.
