What You’ll Need to Make Chicken Salad
Chicken Breast: The star of the show! Opt for boneless, skinless chicken breasts for a lean and protein-packed salad.
Mayonnaise: Go light or use a healthier mayo option if you’re watching your calories. It’s the creamy base that ties everything together. I used Sir Kensington’s Avocado Oil Mayonnaise in my chicken salad.
Pecans or Walnuts: These crunchy nuts add a delightful texture and a hint of nutty flavor to your chicken salad. Choose your favorite!
Fresh Tarragon: Don’t skip this herbaceous gem! Fresh tarragon elevates the flavors to a whole new level.
Lemon Juice: A squeeze of fresh lemon juice provides that zesty kick that makes your taste buds sing.

Tips and Tricks
- The Perfect Chicken: Start with perfectly cooked chicken. You can poach it, grill it, or even use rotisserie chicken if you’re short on time. The key is to make sure it’s cooked through but still juicy. Overcooked chicken makes for a dry salad, and we don’t want that!
- Balance is Key: Play around with the mayo-to-chicken ratio to suit your taste. Some like it creamy, while others prefer a lighter touch. You’re the boss of your lunchbox, so adjust to your heart’s content.
- Prep for Success: This chicken salad is an MVP in meal prep. Make a big batch on Sunday and portion it into containers for the week. It stays fresh in the fridge, making lunchtime a breeze. Just be sure to keep the nuts separate until you’re ready to dive in to maintain that satisfying crunch.
