Classic Chicken Salad

Chicken salad is my favorite way to use leftover chicken. There are a thousand variations on it, but this is a timeless recipe that I always end up going back to. Enjoy as a sandwich or piled on salad greens-if you can get it out of the bowl without eating it all.


Serves 2

1 cup shredded chicken meat Saucy Note: We have a Traeger smoker, so I like to make a couple chickens at a time and use them for several days for sandwiches and snacks. We haven’t posted a recipe for smoking chicken since not everyone has a smoker, but let us know if you are interested and we’ll be happy to post it. This recipe works with any leftover chicken though, or you can roast chicken breasts a few hours before you want to make the recipe and chill until ready to use.

½ cup of grapes, halved

2 stalks celery, sliced

⅓ cup mayonnaise

3 tbsp. Grey Poupon mustard

1 tbsp. champagne or white wine vinegar

1 tsp. garlic powder

½ tsp. garlic powder

Pinch of celery salt

Pinch of sea salt


Combine ingredients in mixing bowl-add grapes last so they don’t get smushed, and fold gently to combine.








Enjoy as a sandwich or piled on salad greens-I also like to garnish mine with some ground black pepper.
