Bye-bye boring lunches! Meal prep a big batch of this pesto chicken salad for lunches during the week. Use it in power bowls and sandwiches, and over greens—it's great cold! Here’s a kitchen hack: slash time by using leftover Rotisserie Chicken


Ingredients
Preparation
  1. Place chicken in Multipurpose Steamer. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Cover;  microwave on medium (50% power) for 14–15 min, or until chicken is cooked through. 
  2. Meanwhile, dice celery and onion. Slice grapes in half, if using. Place diced veggies and sliced grapes in a large bowl. 
  3. Once chicken is cooked, remove from steamer. Cut into bite-size pieces; add chicken pieces to bowl with veggies and grapes. 
  4. Add pesto, mayo, and sunflower seeds. Toss to combine. Serve as is, or chilled.
