Homemade Chicken Salad

I couldn't wait to post the follow up to my Easy Lemon, Rosemary, and Chicken Recipe and the only reason the title for this post isn't "Easy Homemade Chicken Salad" is the fact you have to take on the last post first!

I'm not even going to give too much direction on this post after you have the leftovers. The pictures should walk you through the steps:

Chicken salad is really just a preference of mixed ingredients, usually incorporating mayonnaise as a base.

Three things I pay attention to when making chicken salad:
  1. The amount of mayonnaise — remember you can always add more but it's difficult to take away (light is always better).
  2. Then the bread — yes whole grain whatever you choose but my choice is a light buttery fluffy croissant.
  3. The last is a splash of lemon juice. Trust me.

If you have questions about making chicken salad after reading this post feel free to contact me, otherwise I will leave you with this question: What goes in your chicken salad? Nuts? bleah!

E.A.T. Local E.A.T. Well


  1. Chicken, chopped capers, chopped cornichons, chopped boiled eggs, mayo diluted with a bit of either sour cream or greek yoghurt, a tiny bit of Dijon mustard, lots of freshly milled pepper.

  2. Love it.Almost can taste scucculent chicken,freshness of the cucumber,sourness of the lemon..yes baby:) I often put coriander in mine;))
