Sweet and Savory Chicken Salad

For me, the best part of a roasted chicken is the leftover breast meat…

…because I make chicken salad with it.  And I love me some chicken salad!

Now, I make my chicken salad with canola oil based mayonnaise, which makes it somewhat less fattening.  Then, I plop it on some toasted whole grain bread and top it leafy lettuce.  YUM!

As for my recipe, honestly I eyeball it so I’m not really sure about the quantities listed below, but you get the idea.  Plus, it also depends on what ingredients I have on hand.  Sometimes I’ll add dried cranberries and chopped apples.  Anything goes! It’s all good.

Chicken Salad


½ cup chopped chicken breast

4 Tbsp mayonnaise

2 Tbsp minced celery (about 2 stalks)

2 Tbsp minced red onion

¼ cup sliced raw almonds

¼ cup of red seedless grapes cut into halves


Add all the ingredients in a small bowl.  Mix until well combined.  Add salt and pepper, if needed.

Now link up and see what If I Could Escape and Gone Bananas are serving for this week’s Friday Food Fight.

  1. Chicken Salad is a favorite of mine, too…so versatile! And always tasty…except the one time when I ordered it from a bagel shop, drove away, took a big bite and discovered- Miracle Whip. Barf. Ruined my day…
