My Favorite Chicken Salad Recipe
A refreshing and simple chicken salad, this is just as delicious over a bed of lettuce as it is on a sandwich!
These cool, creamy chicken salads are our top reviewer picks! Which has your vote for the best-ever chicken salad recipe?
This is probably the best chicken salad I've ever had. I used leftover BBQ chicken breasts, removed the skin and cut the meat into cubes. Served it on toasted seeded bread - it was amazing. I highly recommend.
This is delicious! I didn't have pecans and we have one who doesn't like celery, but I think it would have been even better with both of those. Thanks for sharing.
I made this just as minus nuts, 1/2 tsp. pepper & 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper. The wife and I loved it, most yummy.
SOOOOOO Good! I've tried many chicken salad sandwich recipes and this one is definitely in the top three of my favorites. It will definitely be a staple recipe in our family from now on :)
OH. MY. WORD. I’m not usually a fan of chicken salads — the usual fruit just turns me off. But THIS is DELISH! I didn’t have relish, so left that out, left out the sugar and doubled the lemon juice. Also used dry onion powder and dill for those (smaller quantities since I was replacing for fresh). This will be a go-to recipe from now on!
I looked over many recipes and this one was the one I decided on! I wanted a basic chicken salad recipe without fruit but not bland. The onion and celery give it the crunch, the mustard and spices the flavor, and the sweet relish and bit of sugar the sweetness it needs. I did not use pecans, lemon juice, dill, or paprika because I did not have them, but it had plenty of flavor without! I used 2 large cans of chicken breast which made this recipe quick and simple! Next time I have leftover chicken I will use it! This in my opinion is the best basic chicken salad recipe!
