In this post I’ll be sharing my Simple Chicken Salad Recipe.

I love to make this simple chicken salad for lunches. I have another chicken salad recipe that I call “Fancy Chicken Salad” that I use for parties and I’ll post that sometime in the future. This simple recipe is just that, easy with minimal ingredients, but still delicious.

The easy sandwich salad recipe would be my go to that I have most often. With just a few ingredients it is still a delicious meal.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 – 3 c Chicken, diced
  • 1 small Onion, diced or use 1/2 a medium onion
  • 2 Boiled Eggs, chopped
  • 2 tbs Dill Pickle Cubes
  • Salt & Freshly Cracked Black Pepper to taste
  • Dash Dried Thyme
  • 1/3 – 1/2 Mayonnaise
  • 1/4 c Celery, diced (optional)
Chicken salad on a cracker
I boiled two bone in chicken breast and pulled the meat and diced it up. The chicken breast may also be oven roasted for added flavor. Feel free to use leftover rotisserie chicken if you have it on hand.
 
Combine all of the ingredients together in a mixing bowl and refrigerate.
 
Perfect for lunches or snacks. Serve with crackers or on a sandwich. A tasty scoop of chicken salad is also delicious served on a bed of lettuce or used as as stuffing for fresh tomatoes.
 
However you choose to enjoy your chicken salad, it is sure to be an easy delicious meal.
