The Best Chicken Salad Recipe
by Haley Harmon
There is something about the warm weather, and not wanting to turn on the stove that makes me crave chicken salad. I make up a bunch and then keep it in the fridge for lunch for the week. It’s one of those foods that gets better the longer that it sits.
I think what makes this “the best” chicken salad recipe is using grilled chicken leftovers. Those smoky flavors are so delicious! You can throw on some extra chicken breasts when you’re BBQ-ing your burgers and dogs if you’re the planning ahead type.
Basically you shred the leftover chicken with a fork. Add the minced garlic, chopped onions and rosemary, mix in the mayo, a squeeze of lemon and salt and pepper to taste.
