Recipe: Apple Chicken Slaw

P2One thing I hear over and over again while I coach is this:

I need easy to make ahead meal ideas for P2.

Biz to the rescue!

This is one of those recipes that you can make the night before and it stays well for a day or more.  It’s an all in one meal so travels very well.  It takes only 5-10 minutes to prepare so you don’t have that excuse that something takes too long to make so I had to stop at a drive thru to eat.

::giggle::

Top it off?  It’s tasty!

And one more thing?  At my local Winn-Dixie I can get canned chicken that only contains chicken, water and sea salt, so even easier!

Enjoy!
