For me, the best part of a roasted chicken is the leftover breast meat…
…because I make chicken salad with it. And I love me some chicken salad!
Now, I make my chicken salad with canola oil based mayonnaise, which makes it somewhat less fattening. Then, I plop it on some toasted whole grain bread and top it leafy lettuce. YUM!
As for my recipe, honestly I eyeball it so I’m not really sure about the quantities listed below, but you get the idea. Plus, it also depends on what ingredients I have on hand. Sometimes I’ll add dried cranberries and chopped apples. Anything goes! It’s all good.
½ cup chopped chicken breast
4 Tbsp mayonnaise
2 Tbsp minced celery (about 2 stalks)
2 Tbsp minced red onion
¼ cup sliced raw almonds
¼ cup of red seedless grapes cut into halves
Add all the ingredients in a small bowl. Mix until well combined. Add salt and pepper, if needed.
Now link up and see what If I Could Escape and Gone Bananas are serving for this week’s Friday Food Fight.

Chicken Salad is a favorite of mine, too…so versatile! And always tasty…except the one time when I ordered it from a bagel shop, drove away, took a big bite and discovered- Miracle Whip. Barf. Ruined my day…
Next time you’ll have to try using low fat sour cream instead of mayo! Here’s my recipe!

My husband will love this! I’m sure I will too. Thanks for sharing.
This looks delicious! For once I have ALL of these ingredients! I like the idea that Corey mentioned of sour cream too. 🙂
Thanks so much for linking up to Friday Potluck.
It was delicious! ;P
ohhhhhhhhhh, sliced raw almonds. I will put that in my chicken salad next time I make it.
Excuse me, I’m comin’ over for the other half of that delish sandwich! 🙂
This sounds so delicious! I love the combination of fruit, nuts and roasted chicken, and this recipe seems quite easy to make. Thanks for the idea!
That sure looks yummy – thanks for the recipe! 🙂
