Chicken Salad

Chicken Salad

My mom made a similar chicken salad not too long ago, but had no recipe or measurements.  While mine isn’t exact, it is a good starting place to add to/take away from.  And oh so delicious!


  • 1 rotisserie chicken
  • 1/2c mayonnaise [diary free option: vegan-aise]
  • 1/4c half & half [dairy free option: coconut milk]
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 apple chopped
  • 2-3 tbsp chopped celery
  • 2-3 tbsp chopped pecans/walnuts
  • handful craisins
  • salt & pepper to taste


Pull chicken off bone and chop into bite-size chunks.  Place chicken, celery, apple, nuts, and craisins in bowl.  In separate bowl, whisk together mayo, half & half, and lemon juice.  Pour mayo mixture over chicken mixture and stir together.  Add salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate.

Great by itself, over lettuce, or in a sandwich!
