Chicken Salad

chicken-salad-done

Great things about this recipe:  it can be made ahead of time, is served cold, can be packed up for a picnic or lunch on the go.  The crunch of the celery and nuts pairs perfectly with the sweet grapes and chicken.

Here’s what you’ll need:

chicken-salad-ingr

4 cups cooked chicken, cut up

2/3 cup chopped pecans

4 stalks celery, chopped

2 cups seedless purple grapes, halved

1 cup mayonnaise

2 Tbs. lemon juice

salt, to taste

1/2 tsp. pepper

Combine the chicken, celery, grapes and nuts in a large bowl.  In a small bowl, stir together the mayo, salt, pepper, and lemon juice.  Stir this sauce into the chicken mixture and chill for several hours.

  1. I love chicken salad and this looks like the perfect thing to make for this weekend! where did you find your little cups for the mayo and pecans? they’re adorable!!

    • The little cups came from Pier One. They are measuring cups, but the 1 cup and 1/2 cup aren’t completely accurate. I love using them though. The sit on the ledge over the sink when they aren’t holding food for pictures.

  2. oh, I was looking for that. So thank you for sharing this. I love you add grapes and nuts in it. We had chicken salad on a croissant at a cafe, and it was so yummy that I wanted to make my own. the croissant was fabulous too. How do you cook your chicken?

  3. I love chicken salad! I haven’t had it in quite a while. This one looks great with the grapes! I love your little cups too!

  4. Love the new site! I haven’t had chicken salad in forever! I’ll have to whip some up!

  5. I make a version of this chicken salad and add in some fresh tarragon. It’s really yummy.
    Thanks for stopping by my site.

  6. oohhh i love chicken salad! that looks great!

  7. i love chicken salad recipes. So Springy- even more so when the fruit is added.

  8. Great recipe! I ate some chicken salad with grapes in it once and loved it, but never got the recipe. I bet this is it, or really close to it.

    Thanks for sharing it!

  9. This is a nice recipe for Chicken Salad and may be even tastier than side items sold at cafes and small sandwich stores. The grapes are a fancy addition!

  10. I dont know what I did wrong because I followed this recipe to the T and it was way too salty! I thought chicken salad was suppose to be a little sweet. All I could taste is salt!

    • Chris, I’m sorry that it was so salty. That’s disappointing. I’m going to change the recipe to read “salt to taste”. I know that won’t help fix your chicken salad. Again, sorry that it didn’t turn out.
