Every half day, I take my kids to a new restaurant to try. We recently visited a new Firehouse Subs and I fell in love with their Momma’s Homemade Chicken Salad sandwich. Bonus, it’s under 500 calories! If you’ve been following our health journey, you’ll have noticed we have cut way back on sugar, wheat, dairy and legumes. We’re just trying to eat clean with as little processed foods as possible. Our dad is a farmer and explained some animals are raised. So we’ve been raising our own eggs and are prepping our field for cows. When we shop, we focus on meats that are 100% natural with no antibiotics, no added hormones or steroids. This yummy recipe will meet all of our qualifications and doesn’t skip the flavor. Sooo good, you’ll love our Firehouse Subs Copycat Chicken Salad, mmm!
This is easy to make with fresh, frozen or even canned chicken, although we prefer fresh.
