I made this Bistro Chicken Salad in under 5 minutes with Nestle Lean Cuisine Salad Additions! #BYOL #Cbias

Bistro Chicken Salad Collage

I am always in a hurry when lunch time rolls around. I’ll have just finished combating the carpool lanes at Emma’s school, and I have three hungry kids on my hands. Without a doubt, they always get fed first. This is partly because I need to feed them to keep them from getting bossy (ha!), and partly because I like to have salads for lunch, but it takes forever to make them!

I hit up Walmart to find some quick lunch solutions (see my entire shop here). I’d seen some advertisements for these new Lean Cuisine Salad Additions, and I wanted to give them a try. I love the concept — just add in lettuce and bam, salad! The lettuce is the easy part — grilling the chicken, chopping the veggies, and acquiring all of the fancy add-ins is what takes forever.

  • Asian-Style Chicken Salad
  • Bistro Chicken Salad
  • Cranberry & Chicken Salad
  • Southwest-Style Chicken Salad

I picked up one of each, because I wanted to see which I would like the best. Can’t knock any of them until you try it, right?


Look at everything that’s included! Chicken, veggies, dressing, and a topper. It would take me forever (or a ton of once a week prep work!) to get all of that together, bagged, and prepped for a week’s worth of lunches! The first one I tried was the Bistro Chicken Salad variation. Try and tell me that this isn’t a gorgeous salad:

saladThe best part? It was amazing! I’m not even a bell pepper fan, but these didn’t bug me too much! I loved the dressing — like LOVE loved it. So yum! I saved a ton of time, had a “fancy salad” as Micah called it, and saved some of my sanity in the process :). Win/win!

    I tried the Asian Style Chicken first and I agree, their dressings are so yummy! I loved the fresh veggies and adding my own salad mix. Mmm… now I am going to have to try this one, too. Your pics are making me so hungry before lunch time.

    Your salad looks so good, my tummy is rumbling!! I love red peppers, so I think the Bistro Chicken Salad would be the one I would love to try first. I keep hearing these salads are so delicious :)
