Chicken Salad

Chicken salad is a favorite in my family and this fall-inspired version is the BEST! Toasted pecans, crunchy celery, super flavorful chicken, and chewy cranberries all tossed in a sweet poppyseed dressing? Amazing! And even better when it’s served as a dip with crackers, fruit, and veggies!

How Do You Make Chicken Salad?

This recipe is extremely easy which is perfect for this busy holiday season! You can whip it all together in 10-15 minutes and serve it right away! Add a sprinkle of salt and pepper and you now have the perfect compliment for your salad. Check out my recipe below for detailed directions on how to make this delicious recipe.

Chicken salad ingredients

There are only FOUR ingredients in this salad: pecans, celery, dried cranberries, and chicken.

The “secret” to having the best chicken salad is using really tender and flavorful chicken. And the best way I’ve found to do this is by using a pre-made rotisserie chicken. I use about 2 cups of meat from a rotisserie chicken and then use the remaining chicken in another recipe. (See here, here, and here!)

The “dressing” for this chicken salad recipe requires only a few ingredients as well: mayo, sour cream, poppyseeds, a little lemon, Dijon mustard, and some honey for a little sweetness.

How to serve chicken salad

  • My favorite way to serve chicken salad is on croissants! If you’re looking for a great appetizer you can serve this chicken salad on miniature croissants. (Full size croissants make a great lunch!)
  • Serve as a dip: place the chicken salad mixture in a bowl and surround it with chips, veggies, and thinly sliced apples.
  • Serve on top of thinly sliced apples (or make a low carb “sandwich” with apples as the bread)

ENJOY!

The BEST chicken salad recipe. This makes the perfect dip or sandwich filling!

  • 2 cups prepared rotisserie chicken, chopped into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup pecans, toasted and coarsely chopped
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries (cherry infused for an even more delicious chicken salad!)
  • 2 stalks celery, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup full fat mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream (fat free or light is great!)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons poppyseeds
  • 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Enjoy With:

  • Croissants or other Sandwich Rolls (add some lettuce for a sandwich)
  • Thinly sliced apples
  • Celery Sticks
  • Crackers
  • To toast the pecans: pour the pecans into an even layer in a small, dry (no need to add oil or anything) skillet over medium-heat and stir them around a bit until they are fragrant, lightly browned, and toasted to your liking. Watch carefully to avoid burning the nuts (they can go from toasted to burned VERY quickly)

  • In a large bowl, add in the chopped rotisserie chicken, toasted and chopped pecans, dried cranberries, and thinly sliced celery.

  • Add the mayo, sour cream, honey, Dijon mustard, poppyseeds, lemon juice, and a generous (or to taste) sprinkle of salt + pepper.

  • Gently stir all of the ingredients together until combined. Taste and adjust for seasonings (salt, pepper, additional lemon, etc.) 

  • Enjoy with crackers, apples, and celery sticks OR layer it on a croissant and add some lettuce. Enjoy immediately.
