Easy and Delicious Chicken Salad

This is one of those recipes that I can make in my sleep. It is simple, delicious and like most of my recipes you can tailor it to your specifications. This is perfect for your lunch, a snack or to take to a get-together as an hors d’oeuvre. In other words, you can make it as simple or fancy as you would like.

First things first. You can start with a chicken breast and cook it the way you love and then shred OR you can be lazy like me and use canned. Either way it’s going to be scrumptious.

If you go the canned chicken way, make sure that you drain it very, very well. There is nothing worse in my opinion than soggy chicken salad.

Flake the chicken well and add in salt, pepper, sugar and diced onion. You can also add in other things you love here, like crisp apples or sweet grapes, whatever floats your boat.

Don’t forget my tip about using the ends of your onions. Recipes like this one are perfect for using them.


Next, add your favorite mustard and my favorite mayonnaise. One of the reasons I love this mustard is the container it comes in. I LOVE that narrow nozzle.


Mix it all together…..And put it on your favorite cracker for heaven.

Here’s the handy dandy recipe.
