I’m all about finding easy lunch ideas that don’t take too long to make yet also taste good so today I am going to share with you 3 easy lunch ideas using cooked chicken.

3 easy lunch ideas using cooked chicken

Cooked chicken is readily available in most supermarkets and is relatively inexpensive. They’re ideal for making quick lunches as they can be used in a number of ways. I picked up a packet of Moy Park 3 Skin On Roast Chicken Breast Fillets from my weekly Ocado shop.
