TIPS FOR MAKING CHICKEN SALAD
* Add grapes, raisins, apples, or craisins to add a sweet and savory flavor. * This recipe calls for almonds but you can use other types of nuts like pecans, walnuts, or cashews. * Replace the mayo with pureed avocado and sour cream for an avocado chicken salad. * Cut the calories in this recipe by using Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise. * This recipe takes a total time of 5 minutes to throw together, but I like to refrigerate it for at least an hour to give the flavors a chance to come together. * If you don’t have time to cook the chicken yourself you can use a rotisserie chicken. Just remove the skin and chop into pieces. * You can use fresh chicken or canned chicken for this recipe. * Make BBQ chicken salad by adding 2-3 tablespoons of your favorite BBQ sauce in place of some of the mayonnaise. * Add spices to this recipe to add different flavors like garlic, paprika, curry powder, or even mustard. Try chipotle seasoning and lime juice instead of lemon juice. Or a dash of cayenne pepper with pickled jalapenos for a spicy version. * Cook the chicken breasts in the crockpot, then use an electric hand mixer to shred the chicken for a shredded chicken salad recipe!Pin this recipe now to remember it laterPin Recipe * Mix chicken, salt, pepper, mayonnaise, lemon juice, celery, and almonds together in a large serving bowl. * Refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.Note: click on times in the instructions to start a kitchen timer whilecooking.Calories: 435kcal | Carbohydrates: 1g | Protein: 30g | Fat: 33g | SaturatedFat: 5g | Cholesterol: 95mg | Sodium: 405mg | Potassium: 286mg | Sugar: 1g |Vitamin A: 60IU | Vitamin C: 1.9mg | Calcium: 29mg | Iron: 1.2mgKeyword: chicken salad recipeFresh And Creamy Chicken Salad With Grapes And Walnuts RecipeWhat’s the healthiest way to serve chicken?
