Leftover chicken is a very common occurrence in our household so 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 one. I chose a few ingredients I thought would be ideal in making a classic type, homemade chicken salad and the result was one of the best chicken salads I’ve made so far.
I would say the most time-consuming part of this recipe is boiling the chicken. My chicken was still partly frozen, so I had to boil it a little longer than usual (an hour and half to be exact). Otherwise, it should take about 45 minutes to 1 hour to boil. Once that’s done, everything else is very easy to put together. Make sure to start early so that you have time to chill it in the fridge for a couple hours before serving.
This recipe is light and healthy without too many ingredients. It makes for a great side or sandwich and lasts for a few days if you love leftovers. Read on for the full recipe and leave me any feedback or questions in the comments below!
