Favorite Chicken Salad
This is my favorite chicken salad recipe, and I hope it becomes your favorite too!
My favorite way to prepare chicken for salad is to boil a whole chicken. You get tender and delicious chicken meat, and nutritious stock to use in soup.
You can also use leftover roast chicken for salad, or poach some chicken breasts or thighs.
4 cups diced cooked chicken
1 stalk of celery, finely diced
1/4 cup finely diced white onion
1/2 cup finely diced pickles. My favorite are baby kosher dill pickles.
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Mayonnaise (my favorite store-bought is Sir Kensington's avocado oil mayonnaise)
Combine all ingredient except mayonnaise and mix well. Add just enough mayo to coat, about 1/3 cup or so. Taste and if there is not enough flavor, add more lemon juice, pickles, or a dash of Dijon mustard. This will depend on how tangy your mayo is.
Serve immediately, or put in the fridge and serve later. Enjoy!
