Honey Mustard Chicken Salad

Recipe Tips:

You can marinate the chicken for about an hour or omit that step. I like letting the flavor soak in though! You can make the bacon anyway you want but I bake it with the chicken. Makes things super easy and easy clean up.

For add ins, I like to do tomatoes, avocado, and cooked bacon.

If the dressing is a little thick, you can add some water to thin it out to make it a dressing. It stores well in the fridge for 4-5 days. Hope you enjoy this honey mustard chicken salad!
