Leftover chicken is a very common occurrence in our household. There have been many times I’ve had to whip up a quick chicken salad with whatever I had on hand. This particular time was a little different because I actually planned this recipe out. I chose a few ingredients I thought would be ideal in making a classic, homemade chicken salad and the result was one of the best chicken salads I’ve made so far.
This recipe yields a large batch and usually includes about 4 chicken breasts, fully cooked and cut into small pieces. If you don’t have any leftover chicken laying around, you can make some fresh chicken using the steps I’ve outlined below:
Once that’s done, everything else is very easy to put together. Make sure to start making this dish early so that you have time to chill it in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving.
This chicken salad recipe is light and healthy with very few ingredients needed. It makes for a great side dish or hearty sandwich. Read on for the full recipe and leave me any feedback or questions in the comments below!
