Now that my husband and I are back on Keto, I am having a fun time making a bunch of different Keto recipes. At all times, there is a rotisserie chicken in my fridge from Sam’s Club. They are perfect for those nights when we need to get our macros right and need a little more protein. A week or two ago, I picked up a new (to me) seasoning from Aldi called Tajin Chili Lime seasoning. My husband loves traditional chicken salad. I thought I would make him a zesty Keto chicken salad with the Tajin seasoning!

Chili Lime Keto Chicken Salad
Super easy and delicious low carb Keto chicken salad recipe.
- 10 oz Shredded Chicken
- 2/3 Cup Dukes Mayo
- 11/2 Celery Stalks chopped
- 1 TBSP Lime Juice
- 1 tsp Tajin Chili Lime Seasoning
- 1/4 tsp Salt
- 1/8 tsp Black Pepper
- 1/8 -1/4 tsp Onion Powder
Place your shredded chicken into your mixing bowl. I chose to use a rotisserie chicken, but you can use canned chicken, or whatever chicken you want to use!
Next add your chopped celery, mayo, lemon juice, Tajin seasoning, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
Add 1/8 tsp of onion powder. Mix and taste. Add another 1/8 tsp of onion powder if you desire (I did!).
Enjoy by itself, on a chaffle bun, or on a bed of lettuce!

Feel free to reach out with questions. My husband and I did Keto for a few years, then took a little break when I had a few surgeries and now we are back at it. The first time I did Keto, I lost 90 lbs! I did gain a little back after having three back to back surgeries, but I am convinced I will get to my goal weight this time around!
