Chicken salad


Chicken salad is a great treat for lunch, dinner or to take to a potluck. There are many variations of chicken salad you can make from the basic recipe.


1 1⁄2 c chicken (cooked chicken chunks, diced small)
1⁄2 c celery (chopped)
1⁄2 c onion (thinly sliced or chopped)
1⁄2 c raisin (or seedless grapes, white or purple)
1⁄4 c mayonnaise (or mayonnaise based sauce)
  seasoning (to taste)


  1. Mix all the ingredients, except the diced chicken, in a bowl - add your own condiments and extra ingredients here.
  2. Add the chicken and mix to coat in the dressing. Check the seasoning.
  3. Chill until needed.


Substitute mayonnaise with curried mayonnaise, thousand islands, Marie Rose sauce, or a simple salad dressing.

Substitute raising or grapes with apple pieces, or mango. 

You can add almond slices or pecans for a crunchy treat, cheese, hard boiled sliced egg, or lemon juice to the mixture for added flavor.
