Best AND Easiest Chicken Salad
Sometimes the best things in life are the simple things, the easy things, the things you don’t over-complicate. This chicken salad recipe happens to be the perfect example. I’ve had so many variations of chicken salad in my life – with grapes, with pecans, with lots of mayonnaise, with just a touch of mayonnaise, with yogurt instead of mayonnaise, with herbs, with honey, with pickle juice. None of these variations measure up to this one. This chicken salad has only a few ingredients, and by using a food processor to chop the chicken, this recipe goes right to the top of the “easy-to-make” list.
Best Way to Use up Leftover Chicken
If you happen to have leftover chicken, this is hands down one of the best ways to use it up. This chicken salad is so tasty, in fact, that you might want to roast a chicken just so you can have leftovers to make it. That would be one way to ensure you have the most important ingredient – cooked chicken. If you don’t have leftover cooked chicken, however, you could also quickly air fry some chicken breasts. You’ll find instructions on how to do that here.
