Chicken Salad Recipe At Bottom

TIPS FOR MAKING CHICKEN SALAD

  • Add grapes, raisins, apples, or craisins to add a sweet and savory flavor.
  • This recipe calls for almonds but you can use other types of nuts like pecans, walnuts, or cashews.
  • Replace the mayo with pureed avocado and sour cream for an avocado chicken salad.
  • Cut the calories in this recipe by using Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise.
  • This recipe takes a total time of 5 minutes to throw together, but I like to refrigerate it for at least an hour to give the flavors a chance to come together.
  • If you don’t have time to cook the chicken yourself you can use a rotisserie chicken. Just remove the skin and chop into pieces.
  • You can use fresh chicken or canned chicken for this recipe.
  • Make BBQ chicken salad by adding 2-3 tablespoons of your favorite BBQ sauce in place of some of the mayonnaise.
  • Add spices to this recipe to add different flavors like garlic, paprika, curry powder, or even mustard. Try chipotle seasoning and lime juice instead of lemon juice. Or a dash of cayenne pepper with pickled jalapenos for a spicy version.
  • Cook the chicken breasts in the crockpot, then use an electric hand mixer to shred the chicken for a shredded chicken salad recipe!

Classic Chicken Salad is the PERFECT combo of seasoned chicken breast, creamy mayonnaise, lemon juice, crunchy celery, and almonds, ready in just minutes!
