Pulled Chicken Salad or Sandwiches

If you’re craving the flavor of barbeque, but don’t want the prep time or the expense of eating out, try the Jack Daniel’s Pulled Chicken from Costco.  It’s fully cooked so just heat and serve.  Each serving contains 19 grams of carbs and 16 grams of protein.  If you’re watching your carbs, serve it on a bed of lettuce and make a delicious pulled chicken salad or open-faced on a bun for about 15 extra grams of carbs.  If serving on a bun, be sure to add some veggies on the side to round out the meal.
