Chicken Salad Recipe!

I have been making Chicken Salad the same way for YEARS but decided to mix it up a little bit for our Memorial Day Beach trip with the Fallis/Brown clan!  I was in the mood for something "refreshing" since we'd be at the beach so I decided to add grapes & celery to give it a nice taste.

Here is what ended up in the recipe:

Chicken Salad (my new way):


  • 1 Pound Cooked Chicken Breast cut into cubes (I boiled my chicken in water on medium heat until done - about 25-30 min)
  • 1 Cup Mayo (to make this a bit healthier you can use "lite")
  • 1 Cup Chopped Celery (I chopped mine pretty small bc I don't like big celery chunks)
  • 1 Cup halved Purple Grapes
  • Small Package Slivered Almonds ( I think mine was 2 oz or 4 oz) You can toast these if you'd like, I didn't
  • 1 Tbsp finely Chopped Fresh Parsley
  • Kosher Salt & Black  Pepper (to taste)
  • 1/2 Cup Whipping Cream (Whipped)
Combine Chicken, Mayo, Celery, Grapes, Almonds, Parsley, Salt & Pepper in Bowl.  Mix Well.
Whip the whipping cream with a blender until peaks start to form.  Fold Whipped Cream into Chicken Mixture and combine well.



  1. My daughter and I just made 2 batches of your freezer crockpot meals.
    That was 16 meals. It was fun and what we have tasted is great. Liked the ideas it was only 4 recipes and your lists and directions were spot on. Make some more!! Cindy and Heather

  2. I add in diced apples too in my chicken salad. Usually Fuji or Gala.
