I love a good salad and share this one all of the time over on our Instagram stories. It’s so easy and one of our go-to favorites. If you have never gotten the Chicken Apple Pecan Salad at Wendy’s, then you will LOVE this recipe. And, if you have, then you already know you LOVE it… and I will show you how you can easily make it at home. I always think that I shouldn’t share such simple recipes because they are self explanatory, BUT if you are anything like me, you need to refer back to things sometimes.
Did you know I have all of my recipes stored in the recipe tab above. So you can always refer back there for other ones we have shared.
Every time we go through Wendy’s drive thru, I get their Chicken Apple Pecan Salad. It is absolutely delicious. They are pretty pricey as all salads are. One day, we both said, “We can make this at home for so much less….” The convenience of the drive-thru is still nice, but if you find yourself wanting to stay home, here is how to make it.
None of the ingredients are measured, and you can add however much of each you want.
Raspberry Vinaigrette – We have used several different brands
You can make this as healthy as you want by limiting the candied pecans and blue cheese, but both of those ingredients are the best part. ???? If you aren’t a blue cheese person, I think cheddar would also be good.
If she can’t be outside to cook the chicken on the barbecue, her next choice is to use the food ninja on the air crisp setting. Either way she cooks the chicken, she sprays it with a little olive oil and adds lots of salt and pepper. The food ninja makes the chicken so tender and SO GOOD. We can usually cut it with a fork. She usually cooks it in the Food Ninja for around 15-20 minutes depending on the size.
Let me know if you make this Chicken Apple Pecan Salad (Wendy’s Dupe)… It is SO GOOD!
