Crispy Chicken Salad with Creamy Honey-Lime Dressing
We don’t eat out a whole lot, but one of my favorite restaurant salads is the Crispy Chicken Salad with Honey-Lime Dressing from Cheddar’s. I don’t know why I had never thought to make it at home. I found this copycat version online and had to try it out. Oh my goodness it is spot on! I had this salad for lunch 3 days in a row! You could definitely make your own crispy chicken bites or chop up some chicken fingers, but I just used the Tyson frozen popcorn chicken anytizers.
Now I just need to find a copycat recipe for their onion rings!!!! YUM!!!!!!!!!!!
