How to Make Traditional Chicken Salad

Today on The Stay At Home Chef I’m showing
you How to Make Traditional Chicken Salad Today I’m showing you everything you need
to know to make the best homemade chicken salad ever! To start you’ll need 12 ounces of cooked chopped
chicken You can either use rotisserie chicken which
is what I’ve used today or you can use canned chicken or leftovers. Or you can cook some chicken up just for this Just place 2 or 3 chicken breasts into some
chicken broth in a pot, bring it to a boil and let it boil
for about 15 minutes until the chicken is easily shredded with
a fork So we’ll go ahead and place this into a mixing
bowl along with 2 tablespoons of minced sweet onion which I feel like adds a ton of flavor to
your chicken salad. Then it’s nice to add in a little bit of crunch So I’m going to dice up 1 stalk of celery The we’ll go ahead and slide that in with
our chicken mixture as well. Now the rest of the ingredients are all kind
of just mix-ins So you can leave it just as is or you can
add in hard boiled eggs Today though I’m going to add in two of my
favorite mix-ins Some grapes which you can either halve or
quarter depending on their size and we’ll use about 1/4 cup of those Whatever mix-ins you’re using you use about
1/4 cup Then I like to add in some slivered almonds
which are always a popular option Once you have all of the mix-ins that you
like, it’s time to move on to making our dressing. No need to make this in a separate bowl, we
can just add it right in with the chicken. You’ll need 1/2 cup of mayonnaise or if you want to lighten things up you can
use some plain greek yogurt instead Then you’ll squeeze in about 1 teaspoon of
lemon juice Then add in 2 teaspoons of whole grain mustard
to add a little more zing And last add in 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper 1/4 teaspoon of salt and then just a pinch of garlic powder And you’ll stir this all together until it’s
well combined And that’s it! You can serve it atop a bed of lettuce You can stuff it in a tomato or avocado or what I like to do the most is serve it
on a croissant sandwich So good! Thanks for watching! You can find the full written recipe in the
