One can never go wrong with chicken salad, whether it as full meal - or something to whip up between meals. It has come through for me several times as I battle with incorporating more healthy habits into my diet. I'm always on the lookout for healthy chicken salad ideas for dinner time. I keep it simple these days, making lunch our main meal, therefore sticking to light dinners. There are various ways you can take a stab at salads, and having raspberries as an ingredient keeps things interesting. 

Chicken salad ideas for dinner - quick and easy to make raspberry chicken salad (satiating too)

What do you need for this raspberry chicken salad?

What I love about this simple, but still fancy salad is how it takes only 5 ingredients to whip up...

Ingredients for 4 servings

  • 4 cups of salad greens (lettuce)
  • 450g (1 lb) Cooked or grilled chicken breasts
  • 1 cup fresh raspberries
  • 113g (4 oz) crumbled goat cheese
  • Salad dressing of choice
You can substitute the goat cheese with feta cheese. Feta cheese is firmer but also saltier. It really is a matter of preference on your side. 

This is my favorite salad dressing for this chicken salad (OPTIONAL)

  • 1/2 cup of lemon flavored olive oil
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar (white)
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon of garlic power
  • Salt and pepper to taste.


  1. If you will be making your own salad dressing (or the above) from scratch, add all the ingredients in  a mason jar and shake to mix. Set aside for later use.
  2. Divide the salad greens among 4 individual serving plates. Top with chicken breasts, raspberries, and goat cheese.
  3. Drizzle each plate with salad dressing, and serve.
That's just it for this easy dinner hack for you and your family. Feel free to pin, tweet, or share to bookmark this Raspberry Chicken Salad.
