The Best Chicken Salad

The Best Chicken Salad

Hey Friends! I’m so glad that you are here. Don’t you just love a recipe that is fast, easy and oh, so, delicious? Me, too. Today, I am going to share a great recipe with you that is easy to make and it is a crowd pleaser. You can make this ahead and take it to a pot luck, or put it in a croissant and take it on a picnic. It is super versatile. You are going to love this Chicken Salad recipe.

Yum! This makes my mouth water.

Doesn’t this look delicious? This is one of my go-to recipes. I make a big batch of it. It keeps well for four to five days in the refridgerator. Did I mention how delicious this is?

With just a few simple ingredients, you can have a delicious chicken salad in no time.

My husband lovingly calls me “The Queen of the Ten Minute Meal.” Life is way too short to spend so much time in the kitchen, right? This is one of those recipes that get’s you out of the kitchen quickly, but it tastes great, too.

Renae, oh my gosh! When did you publish a cookbook??! How did I miss this? :) I do make chicken salad a lot and unfortunately Hubbs isn't that fond of all the goodies I like to put in it (like grapes!). It was my GO TO sandwich at my teas for over 15 years there in California...

Will be checking out your cookbook on Amazon (I followed the link, thank you!). Happy to feature your post this week at Share Your Style #316 for you. <3

Happy early fall/late summer! Enjoy your garden's blooms!! Barb :)

Wow I didn't know you had a cookbook. Good for you and a big accomplishment. I can't do the clean easting. I enjoy pasta too much I couldn't survive without eating it and I enjoy wine too.

I do eat very healthy. Mostly roasted veggies and fish during the week. The weekends I splurge a bit with carbs.

I love chicken salad and this look delicious. Especially on the croissant.

You can certainly drink wine, it's part of the food pyramid, right?. Clean eating is about eating whole fresh foods. Hugs to you.
