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.

    This looks AMAZING! Thank you so much for sharing the recipe! And SO HAPPY to see this post at the top!

    YOU GO friend!

    Happy day!

    1. Ae, thank you, my friend. I sure appreciate you. I’m praying for your empty nest. As soon as you get that hip fixed, you can chase your husband around the house. It’s the best part of empty nesting until the grand babies come. Hugs to you.

    This looks delicious!!! I can’t wait to try this recipe! I know
    my boys are going to love it!

  3. 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.

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

  4. Okay I’m completely intrigued with the idea of the grapes and the cranberries and all that in the chicken salad. So intrigued that I just HAVE to try it!

  5. 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 🙂

Beautiful interiors don’t have to come with an outrageous price tag. My style is what I like to call Vintage French Farmhouse, I love mixing decorating styles, especially opposites like the glitz of a chandelier dripping in crystals with a chair upholstered in worn aged leather. Refined, yet not too formal-but, livable, elegant traditional design, adding warmth and vintage elements.
