Introduction

Its so hard to get a homemade recipe for chicken salad if you ask people. Everyone always says wellI dont knowI never measure when I make it. I always hate when people tell me that lol but I find myself saying the same thing. It really is one of those recipe that you just throw how much of each ingredient in that you like. Ive been getting so many request for it, I thought Id make it and try to write down everything I put in it. Its so hard to get a homemade recipe for chicken salad if you ask people.

Tips

I did not add hard boiled eggs to mine and used only 1 cup light mayo because of the no eggs in it. If you add 1-3/4 cup mayo you will have soupy chicken salad.

Do not over cook,you want the chicken to be juicy but done. Put on a plate with about 1 cup diced small onions & celery. Cool in refridgerator. Shred cold chicken breast then mix with veggies.

Add the mayo, and more of the seasonings to taste (pepper, celery salt, oniion & garlic powder) Let set in refridgerator for at least a hour, longer for the flavors to meld together.
