Chicken salad is such an easy dish to whip up, and there are so many different ways to make it. Today I decided to add celery and red grapes to the salad. When I don’t add grapes, I usually add a little red onion. And then sometimes, just celery, it all depends on what I’m in the mood for or what I have in the house.
Today I also decided to have the chicken salad on a bed of lettuce, but it is also perfect in a sandwich or on a croissant. I prefer to make my own because I like to use low fat mayonaise to cut calories a little bit.
Here is what you need to make chicken salad:
2 lbs. boneless chicken breast
1/2 cup mayonaise
1 tbsp. spicy brown mustard
1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
stalk of celery chopped
grapes (red or green)
Cook chicken breasts in a glass baking dish at 375 degrees for about 35 minutes or until no longer pink. Let cool.
Whisk together mayonaise, mustard, vinegar, salt and pepper in a mixing bowl.
Chop up a stalk of celery and halve the grapes.
Cut up the chicken into cubes and mix all ingredients well.
I prefer chicken salad cold so I refrigerate for at least an hour. Enjoy!!
