Instructions

I've been making this chicken salad recipe for years and everyone always loves it. You can add ingredients depending on your preferences, but this is one dish I prefer to keep simple. This best chicken salad ever recipe is the perfect summer dish when you want to avoid heating up the oven or you need a quick meal for company. You will need to double the ingredients if you are cooking for 4 or more people. Serve this salad with fresh bread and sliced tomatoes or some of the add-ins listed below. It will be a hit!

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups diced chicken
  • 1 tablespoon celery flakes
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped sweet onion
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • variety of add-ins for people to choose from: almonds, diced apples, grapes, pecans, cranberries, pineapple, chestnuts


Instructions

  1. Boil chicken breasts for 20 minutes. Cut breasts in half to speed up this step. ( Boiling the meat, keeps it moist). Chop chicken into small pieces.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together all of the remaining ingredients. Add the chicken last.
  3. Cover bowl and place in refrigerator until ready to use.
  4. Serve chicken salad buffet style with small dishes containing add-ins so that people can choose their own final ingredients.

      No one in my family likes the crunch of celery in their chicken salad, so I looked for a substitute and found celery flakes. They are great. I will add a pic to my article. Thanks.

      A totally new recipe for me, esp. the celery flakes. I've never seen them!
