While you may remember it more as a lunch-box staple, chicken salad is actually a pretty solid grown-up meal. It’s easy to make, travels well, and can be dressed up a million different ways. Plus, it’s a simple way to use up leftover rotisserie chicken or can be made on the cheap with canned chicken. Consider this your new go-to lunch on days when meal-prep intentions go by the wayside—a few minutes in the morning is all you need to throw one of these crazy-good lunches together.

Thai Peanut Chicken Salad

This sweet, crunchy chicken salad tastes like a mix between slaw and pad Thai. Instead of mayonnaise, the sauce is made of Greek yogurt, peanut butter, ginger, lime juice, and soy sauce. Mix it with Crock-Pot shredded chicken, veggies, cilantro, and peanuts for a super-filling lunch.

Mexican food that won’t leave you in a cheesed-out afternoon slump? Yes, please. This fiesta chicken salad gets its creamy texture from avocado and a kick from cayenne, cumin, and paprika.
