My Favorite Chicken Salad

Good morning and happy Friday! I’m so glad you chose to join me this morning for a little chat and a killer recipe.

Weekends are a great time for fast, easy meals – more time for playing outside or working on your hobbies! This chicken salad ticks all of the boxes you’re looking for in a satisfying lunch. It requires pretty much no effort, and packs a lot of flavor. The tart Craisins and sweet apples pair perfectly with the saltiness of the mayo and bite of the onions. As an added bonus, you can feel good about being lazy and buy a rotisserie chicken from the store. If you prefer a sweeter salad, you could always leave the onions out, we have done it both ways (but you know how much I love onions 😉).

When I eat this, I prefer just the salad alone on a good Kaiser roll. My default mode is Plain Jane. Steven Michael, however, likes to add some flair with lettuce, tomatoes, and a little bit of turkey bacon. It really is customizable to your taste. Ellis still lives off of PB&J, pizza and dinosaur chicken nuggets so he wouldn’t touch it. His loss!

I’m getting my second dose of the vaccine this afternoon, but we’ll be back on Tuesday with another great recipe and a few more antibodies, woo!

My favorite chicken salad - Tart Craisins, sweet apples, crisp red onions, chicken and mayo make the perfect chicken salad to eat alone in a sandwich or with your favorite toppings!
