Chicken, Pecan, Apple Chip Salad

I am transferring all of the recipes from my soon to be defunct food blog to this blog!  Here's a good one!
Let’s talk about Mommy Lunch, because that’s a thing.
And, I’m not talking about the whole eat-what-your-kids-leave-on-their-plates kind of lunch.
I’m talking about a lunch that you will enjoy and will leave you satisfied and maybe even make you feel you ate at a restaurant.
Bonus points if it’s fun, like this Chicken, Pecan, and Apple Chip Salad!

I love having a fun salad for lunch!  I like that I can prep all of the ingredients in the beginning of the week and then quickly assemble the salad for lunch each day.
I used the same dressing that I used on the Apple Pomegranate Salad.  I feel like I could drink that stuff :)
