Easy Chicken Salad

This past summer during the Big Grab Yard Sale we stopped and ate lunch at the Laura’s Tea Room in Ridgeway.  After a long morning of hopping around from sale to sale, this was the perfect place  to unwind, satisfy our bellies and to rejuvenate our energy.  I ordered the Chicken Salad Sandwich Platter and it was truly a delightful lunch. In fact, I would say it was one of the best I’ve ever had.  I look forward to visiting again, but until then I still craved a good chicken salad sandwich.  I did purchase some from Costco but it’s just too much (for two people) and it went bad.  So, I decided to try my luck at making some.  On my first try I used boiled chicken breast and it was ok, but something was missing and I couldn’t figure it out.  Then I decided to use a rotisserie chicken and that is exactly what was needed.  I bought a whole cooked chicken and made it from the leftover chicken we ate for dinner.  So grab yourself a rotisserie chicken and make this easy delicious chicken salad.

  • 2 cups Rotisserie cooked chicken, cut up
  • 3/4 cup Hellman’s mayo
  • 1/3 cup diced onions
  • 1/3 diced celery
  • 1 tablespoon spicy garlic salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 2 tsp vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Craisins (optional)

    • Hey Glenda, yes, the vinegar gives it a bit of twang to it.. I’ve not used mustard (and that sounds different), I may have to try it with that. Let me know how you like it
