How to Make Chicken Salad

Chicken Salad served on lettuce

This is a recipe for classic deli-style chicken salad. Ingredients are suggestions – if you hate hard boiled eggs or celery, for example, feel free to leave them out!



2 cups cooked chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces or shredded with a fork

1 hard-boiled egg, chopped

1/2 cup grapes, cut into quarters

1/4 cup chopped celery

12 green onions, chopped

1/4 cup mayonnaise

2 tablespoons sour cream or plain yogurt

2 teaspoons yellow mustard

1 teaspoon seasoned salt (like Lawry’s or Jane’s Krazy Mixed Up Salt)

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/8 teaspoon dry mustard

1/8 teaspoon paprika


In mixing bowl add chicken, egg, grapes, celery and green onion.

In a separate, smaller bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, sour cream/yogurt, mustard and all of the spices with a spoon.

Pour mayonnaise mixture into the larger mixing bowl and mix everything together.

Serve on top of lettuce or on bread for sandwiches.
