How to make Chicken Salad

This easy chicken salad recipe is made with boneless skinless chicken breasts or can be made with a store bought rotisserie chicken if you are short on time. If you are using chicken breasts that you have on hand, brown two medium breasts in a medium skillet until fully cooked. Combine chopped celery, pecans, apples, grapes and shredded chicken in a large mixing bowl.

In a small mixing bowl add mayonnaise, Greek yogurt, Dijon mustard, onion powder, salt and pepper. Mix well to combine.

Add the mayonnaise dressing to your chicken salad ingredients and toss to combine. I like the added flavor of the Greek yogurt and Dijon mustard in this creamy dressing.

How to serve Chicken Salad

Chicken Salad can be served on a buttery croissant roll, between two slices of your favorite bread, on top of a bed of green lettuce, or eaten by the spoonfuls.
