eats // cilantro lime chicken salad


If you're suffering from too many sweet treats, way too many cocktails & feeling puffy like I am, you may enjoy this light chicken salad recipe. Not only is it light and tasty its quick and easy, because come on who has time to slave in the kitchen when you have a closet busting at the seams with gifts that have yet to be wrapped. Yikes! Less sweet treats and cocktails and more checking off that never ending to do list.
